ARCtick fees frozen for 2024

The Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water (DCCEEW) has announced that ARCtick licence application fees have been frozen for 2024.

The freeze is part of a DCCEEW initiative to ensure licences are financially accessible amidst cost-of-living pressures.

Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC) chief executive officer, Glenn Evans, said the freeze on application fees reflected a shared commitment by ARC and DCCEEW to keep business costs down.

‘ARC has long advocated to keep fee increases as low as possible, and we are delighted that the Department has taken this initiative,’ he said.

‘Fees are normally indexed annually based on the Wage Price Index, which would have resulted in a 4.1% increase on 1 January this year.

‘Instead, thanks to the Department’s initiative, we can announce a zero change in fees for 2024, making this one of the few business costs that will not increase this year.’
