NABERS Administration fees up 40% from July 1st 2014


NABERS Ratings are conducted through Accredited Assessors who will negotiate their fees based on their own costs and business practices. However all ratings are also subject to lodgement fees payable to the National Administrator.

Over the last ten years the program has grown significantly – from less than 70 ratings in 2003 to more than 2200 this year. However rating lodgement fees have not increased in nearly eight years.

On 1 July 2014, NABERS will introduce a new fee structure, including a once-off price increase of $280 on the current single rating lodgement fee – from $700 to $980 (excl. GST) – followed by annual indexing thereafter.

Other changes include a re-organisation of the discount structure to align the NABERS and CBD programs and no longer applying multiple discounts to one rating.

This new fee structure is based on detailed analysis of the financial sustainability of the program and is being introduced to keep pace with increased costs and ensure necessary resourcing.

NABERS delivers public value for the environment as well as commercial value for businesses, and continuing contributions from the Commonwealth, State and Territory governments to the program will also ensure the ongoing enhancement and improvement of the NABERS tools.
