To apply to have your inverter or power conversion equipment (PCE) included on the Clean Energy Council’s Approved Products List, ensure that your product meets the following requirements and that you complete the following process.
As different standards apply to different inverter categories, it is important that you know what type of inverter or PCE you are listing.
Please refer to the following document to identify your inverter category and see which standards apply with AS/NZS 4777.2:2020.
While the Clean Energy Council does not currently verify compliance with Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) labelling requirements, manufacturers need to be aware of their obligations. Requirements for specific product types can be found on ACMA's website.
The Clean Energy Council accepts certificates from the following Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) accredited certifying bodies or state electrical regulators:
If you have certificates from a non-JAS-ANZ accredited organisation, we advise that you submit these and their accompanying test reports to a state electrical regulator for assessment in order to obtain a Certificate of Suitability from that state regulator. The certificate from the state regulator can then be uploaded with the application.
Responsible Supplier is a legally identifiable Australian or New Zealand entity or person who manufactures or imports in-scope electrical equipment in Australia or New Zealand (first supplier)
By law, to register on the EESS Database, the Responsible Supplier must be an Australian or New Zealand legal entity holding an Australian Business Number (ABN), or a New Zealand Inland Revenue Department (IRD) number.
The Responsible Supplier must register the brand and model number of the inverter/PCE as level 1 equipment in the EESS Database. DC isolators integrated into inverters/PCEs must be registered as level 3 equipment.
The applicant must complete the Clean Energy Council’s online application form. Please refer to the application requirements checklist for the information required.
You must also review the Clean Energy Council’s Listing Terms and Conditions and complete the declarations on the application form.
Applications will be delayed if incomplete or incorrect information is supplied.
As part of the application, you must pay the application fee. Applications will not be assessed until the Clean Energy Council has received payment of this fee.
Please note: As part of the transition process to full Certification requirements, the CEC will no longer accept inverter applications with manufacturer declarations from 1st May 2022.
