Printer-friendly version

The Bureau initiated the Standards & Labeling Programme for equipment and appliances in 2006to provide the consumer an informed choice about the energy saving and thereby the cost saving potential of the relevant marketed product. The scheme is invoked for 21 equipment/appliances, i.e. Room Air Conditioners, RAC(Cassette, Floor Standing Tower, Ceiling, Corner AC), Tubular Fluorescent Tube Lights, Frost Free Refrigerators, Distribution Transformers, Direct Cool Refrigerator,Electric storage type geyser,Color TVs, Induction Motors, Ceiling fans, Agricultural pump sets, LPG stoves, Washing machine,Laptops, Ballast, Office automation products, Solid State Inverter, Diesel Engine Driven Monoset Pumps for Agricultural Purposes, Diesel Generator, Inverter AC and LED Lamps. Of which the first 8 products have been notified under mandatory labeling since 7th January, 2010. The other appliances are presently under voluntary labeling phase. The energy efficiency labeling programs under BEE are intended to reduce the energy consumption of appliance without diminishing the services it provides to consumers.
