Administration fees

  • NABERS administration charges and fees

    NABERS Ratings are conducted through Accredited Assessors who will negotiate their fees based on their own costs and business practices. However all ratings are also subject to lodgement fees payable to the National Administrator. The National Administrator also delivers other products and services, such as our training and accreditation, which attract an administration fee. A schedule of fees is outlined below.

    All NABERS fees increased by 2.5% on July 1, 2018.

    Thinking about getting a NABERS Energy for office rating? Check whether you're eligible for funding through the City Switch NABERS Energy Grant program.
