NABERS is a national government program administered by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (the National Administrator).

Although managed by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, the operation of NABERS is overseen by a national Steering Committee comprised of all State and Territory representatives, and the Australian Government. These government members have voting rights within the Committee. For more information about our government members please refer to our Annual Report.

The NABERS Steering Committee is also made up of non-voting stakeholder members from bodies representing the wide range of NABERS stakeholders.

We are now seeking Expressions of Interest for stakeholder members to join the NABERS Steering Committee for a new three year term starting in 2021.

To apply, organisations need nominate a suitably experienced individual who has the authority to consult with and provide feedback on behalf of the organisation and its members.
