In 2010, CLASP and Mark Ellis & Associates published the first, one of its kind MV&E Guidebook, Compliance Counts: A Practitioner’s Guidebook on Best Practice Monitoring, Verification, and Enforcement for Appliance Standards & Labeling. The Guidebook provides step-by-step guidance for policymakers and S&L practitioners to design and implement robust and effective MV&E frameworks.
Compliance with appliance S&L is critically important for all economies; however, there are often limited guidance and resources on MV&E international best practices available for policymakers and S&L program practitioners.
In collaboration with European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the SEAD Initiative, CLASP has undertaken an effort to make the Guidebook accessible to Russian policymakers and program managers by translating the full volume into Russian.
The MV&E Guidebook complements CLASP’s previous major publication – A Standards & Labeling Guidebook for Appliance, Equipment and Lighting. The S&L Guidebook has been translated into Chinese, Spanish, and Korean.
Additionally, in collaboration with the Chinese National Institute of Standardization (CNIS), the MV&E Guidebook is currently being translated into Chinese.
