India Extends Validity of Energy-Saving Labels for Some Electrical Appliances
The India’s Ministry of Power launched the Standards & Labeling Program (S&L) for energy-consumption equipment. The program allows consumers to learn whether the product is energy efficient or not and to obtain information on energy performance of the product via energy labels.
Currently, the S&L program covers star ratings for 26 appliances. Among them are 10 appliances under the mandatory scheme and 16 types of appliances that can be evaluated within the voluntary scheme.
Recently, India’s Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) under the Ministry of Power has notified about the extension of validity of the existing star rating tables for the following categories of products under mandatory scheme:
If manufacturers or permitees want to keep using previously-approved labels on their products, they have to submit a sample label to BEE with a revised validity period.
Furthermore, for already approved models, manufacturers or permitees must submit a self-declaration to BEE in order to continue the star label approval on the device for a period from January 1, 2022 to June 30, 2022 (or December 31, 2022).
