Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on the day after the date of their notification in the Gazette, exempt regulations 4 and 5 of the Energy Efficiency (Energy Using Products) Regulations 2002 from the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Act 1997 (the Act) to the extent that those regulations apply to certain water heaters. The exemption is for the period beginning on the commencement of these regulations to 31 January 2005. The effect of these regulations is that for that period the water heaters to which these regulations apply, whether capable of being sold in Australia or not, must comply with regulations 4 and 5 of the Energy Efficiency (Energy Using Products) Regulations 2002.

These regulations revoke and replace the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition (Continuation of Temporary Exemption for Water Heaters) Regulations 2004, which had the same effect. The reason for the revocation and replacement is the omission of Australian jurisdictions to take a procedural step of notification required by the Act. A fuller explanation of the rationale for continuing the exemption in relation to water heaters is given in the Explanatory Note to the revoked and replaced regulations (SR 2004/6).


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 24 June 2004.
