MEPS - Dish washing

Last updated: 5 November 2017
Dishwashers were first subject to mandatory labelling in Victoria in 1989, with a national labelling scheme coming into effect in 1992.
Each dishwasher in a store in Australia and New Zealand must display an Energy Rating Label. The label tells how much energy the dishwasher uses per year and gives a star rating that allows to compare its efficiency to dishwashers of a similar capacity (number of place settings).
Buying a more energy efficient dishwasher can also reduce water use. Modern energy efficient dishwashers use less water than what is required to fill the average domestic kitchen sink.
