On April 6, 2019, Peruvian Government published Supreme Decree No. 009-2019-EM to postpone the date of implementation of requirements for mandatory certification established by Technical Regulation on the Energy Efficiency Labelling of Energy Using Equipment No. 009-2017-EM of 07.04.2017.
According to the new Decree, requirements to submit a Certificate of Conformity will enter into force gradually for the following energy appliances within the following deadlines:
For household lamps and similar products for general lighting — up to 210 calendar days after April 7, 2019 — till November 3, 2019

Each annex contains an image of the Energy Efficiency Label for its specific product.
For the whole transition period, importers, distributors and/or sellers are also subject to inspection and respective sanctions in case of non-compliance with items 12.2 i), ii) and iii) of the Technical Regulation. They may use national or international accredited or non-accredited testing laboratories to carry out the tests and/or evaluations necessary to report the information and comply with the Energy Efficiency Labeling requirements.
