COVID-19 - Temporary suspension of some VEU activities

The Victorian Government has declared a State of Emergency in Victoria to combat the coronavirus (COVID-19). To reduce the risk of COVID-19 spread, the government is temporarily suspending the following activities under the VEU program effective from 1 April 2020:

- Incandescent lighting upgrades (Activity 21 (A to F))
- Low flow shower roses (Activity 17)
- Weather sealing (Activity 15)
- In-home display unit (Activity 30)
The suspension will apply to these activities in both residential and non-residential premises. This suspension is aligned with the timing for the State of Emergency declaration (currently in place to 31 May 2020) and will be reviewed once that is lifted. 

Accredited Persons will not be able to create certificates for above activities undertaken during the suspension period.

The VEU Registry is an online system that:
  • facilitates the creation, registration, transfer and surrender of Victorian energy efficiency certificates (VEECs)
  • facilitates the submission and approval of product applications for listing of products in our Register of Products
  • tracks the ownership and status of all certificates
  • maintains various public registers as required by the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Act 2007.
All VEECs must be created and registered in the VEU Registry before they can be bought, sold, traded or surrendered.

You must be a VEU account holder to manage VEEC holdings (create, transfer or surrender) or submit product applications. You must be an accredited person under the Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program to create VEECs.

If you do not have an account and would like to apply for one, open a new VEU account.
