Notification of changes to the Certified Insulation Installer Sub-Rules, effective 1 April 2023
The Certified Insulation Installer Sub-Rules have been updated to ensure the certification supports the safe and quality installation of insulation. These changes come into effect on the same day as the introduction of the ACT Government’s minimum rental standards.
What is changing?
The Certified Insulation Installer Sub-Rules have been updated to include:
- A ninth area of assessment, Prepare for insulation retrofitting within ceiling spaces; and
- An associated pre-requisite regarding undertaking training associated with the additional area of assessment.
These changes are included in Schedule 1 and Schedule 4 of the Sub-Rules, and reflect feedback from industry and government.
Certified Insulation Installers need to complete additional training to maintain certification by 30 June 2023
To maintain their certification, certified individuals need to complete the additional training module and submit a recognised certificate of attainment for the training to the EEC by 30 June 2023.

The EEC will provide further information on how to access the training directly to Certified Insulation Installers.
What if certified individuals don’t do the additional training?
Certified Insulation Installers’ certifications will be suspended from 1 July 2023 if they have not successfully completed the training and submited a recognised certificate of attainment to the EEC by 30 June 2023.
