Welcome to the second edition of the Nationwide House Energy Ratings Scheme (NatHERS) Star!
Since the last update, the NatHERS Administrator has continued to deliver reforms to the program in line with activities in its 2015-18 NatHERS Strategic Plan, and in response to decisions made by state and territory and Commonwealth government representatives with oversight for NatHERS operation.
The NatHERS Administrator published an updated Protocol for Assessor Accrediting Organisations (AAOs) in March of this year, which comes into effect on 1 July 2016. The current Protocol is operating during the interim period.
