NatHERS Stakeholder Consultative Group

The Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) Stakeholder Consultative Group (SCG) provides stakeholder and industry feedback to the NatHERS Administrator on the development, implementation and continuous improvement of NatHERS.

The SCG work is complementary to the technical feedback provided by the NatHERS Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)

Role

The SCG provides stakeholder and industry views on the strategic direction of NatHERS, including:

  • Implementation issues or risks with the Scheme
  • Opportunities for continual improvement in the delivery of NatHERS, particularly in relation to the engagement and participation of stakeholders and industry
  • Implementation and review of the NatHERS Strategic Plan and development of future plans, and
  • Other matters as requested by the NatHERS Administrator.

The SCG has no executive power. It functions as a consultative body to assist the NatHERS Administrator and NatHERS Steering Committee in the management of the Scheme.

The SCG meets at least two times per year via teleconference and may also be asked to give
out-of-session consideration to specific matters from time-to-time.

Membership

The SCG is made up of up of representatives from the building, appliance and solar industries, Assessor Accrediting Organisations, software tool developers and other NatHERS stakeholders.

Members of the Stakeholder Consultative Group

Membership period
