EESS FEE INCREASE
Since the EESS (Electrical Equipment Safety System) commenced in Queensland in 2013, responsible suppliers have not been required to pay renewal fees for registration of in-scope electrical equipment. EESS fees have also not been subject to CPI increases. These “exemptions” were put in place until other States and Territories adopted the EESS.
Western Australia and Victoria have now signed on to the EESS and Victoria recently passed legislation to enact the EESS as law. As a result, from 1 January 2019 renewal fees will apply to all level 2 and 3 registered in-scope electrical equipment, and will also be subject to CPI increases.
Note all level 2 equipment can now be registered.
