Consultation Paper on a Mandatory Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme


This was published in July 2005 to invite public views on a proposed mandatory energy efficiency labelling scheme (EELS) for specified electric appliances in Hong Kong.

Under the proposed mandatory EELS, energy labels are required to be shown on specified products for supply in Hong Kong to inform consumers of their energy efficiency performance. The inclusion of energy consuming products into the mandatory EELS will be implemented in phases. Three products in the initial phase of the mandatory EELS are suggested: (a) refrigerators; (b) room coolers; and (c) compact fluorescent lamps.
