ESIA Code of Conduct
The ESIA Code of Conduct aims to ensure high standards are met in the marketing and delivery of energy efficiency certificate creation and related services by ESIA Members to energy customers and other Members.
An ESIA Code of Conduct was developed and issued when the Association
formed in 2013 and was signed by the founding members. Since the extension and
expansion of schemes across Australia by late 2015, it was agreed by the ESIA
Board that the Code should be updated. During 2016, the ESIA engaged in extensive consultation with its members and key stakeholders to update the Code. The new ESIA Code of Conduct includes a Dispute Resolution Process and was published on 14 Nov 2016 with a revision published on 22 Nov 2017. The Code was rebranded by 3 July 2018. The latest ratified update was published on 14 April 2020 and is supported by Best Practice Guidance documents.
