New Assessor Accrediting Organisation

Thursday, July 25, 2019

On behalf of the NatHERS Steering Committee, the NatHERS Administrator has granted provisional accreditation to a new Assessor Accrediting Organisation (AAO).

The House Energy Raters Association (HERA) is the third organisation able to accredit assessors to conduct NatHERS energy ratings, and in doing so, joins the Australian Building Sustainability Association (ABSA) and the Building Designers Association Victoria (BDAV).

HERA met the AAO eligibility requirements and has been provided with provisional accreditation for a six month period from July 2019 until January 2020.

AAOs are professional associations with responsibility for accrediting and supporting NatHERS assessors to provide reliable and consistent home energy ratings. The introduction of an additional AAO is an important step in the development of the Scheme and increases the options available for assessors to be accredited to rate homes using NatHERS software.
