Accreditation fees

The Clean Energy Regulator (CER) is on track to decide, and announce, the outcome of the installer and designer accreditation scheme application process in February 2024. The CEC has not applied and so, to support a smooth transition to new provider(s), we have introduced two key changes to CEC accreditation for those planning to submit a new application before February 2024.

In the section below you will find information on the early cut off dates for new applications and shorter accreditation periods at significantly reduced fees.

More information on the transition can be found here.
