Introduction

India's Standards and Labeling (S&L) program for appliances and equipment is based on the Energy Conservation Act of 2001 and developed and administered by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) provides technical support for India's S&L energy efficiency initiatives through the development of test procedures and related standards.

In 2006, BEE, as authorized by India's Ministry of Power (MOP), initiated the S&L program in India through a voluntary comparative labeling scheme for refrigerators and air conditioners. BEE's overall strategy is to begin labeling on a voluntary basis and transition to a mandatory approach for energy performance and test procedure standards as market receptivity increases.

BEE's Star Labeling is now mandatory for four appliances including frost-free refrigerators, room air conditioners, distribution transformers and tubular fluorescent lights (TFLs). An additional ten products, including single phase split air conditioners, direct cool refrigerators, three phase induction motors, agricultural pump sets, ceiling fans, LPG stoves, hot water geysers, color televisions, ballast(Electronic/Magnetic) and washing machines, are administered by the BEE under the comparative voluntary labeling program. An endorsement label was introduced for computers(notebook/laptop) in 2011.
