Regulatory Impact Statements (RIS) are produced to support the introduction of regulations in Australia and New Zealand. The RIS establishes whether or not the introduction of any regulation, including Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) for appliances, results in net economic, social and environmental benefit for the economy and the country. A RIS includes very detailed assessment of economic, social and environmental impacts of the proposed regulations and provides thorough cost-benefits analysis. EnergyConsult led the project and wrote the RIS concerning implementation of MEPS for Set-top Boxes (STBs) in Australia and New Zealand.
