Hong Kong Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme (HK EELS) Testing
Intertek is cooperating with Hong Kong’s Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) in studying and establishing the Hong Kong Energy Efficiency Labeling Scheme (HK EELS).
To make it easier for the public to choose energy efficient products, Hong Kong’s Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) operates a voluntary Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme for appliances and equipment used in homes, offices and vehicles. The scheme aims to save energy by informing potential customers of the product's level of energy consumption and efficiency rating.
The scheme now covers seventeen types of household appliances and office equipment. In addition, the HK government proposes to introduce a mandatory Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme. Three kinds of products – room air conditioners, refrigerating appliances and compact fluorescent lamps – will be included in the initial phase of the mandatory Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme.
Intertek’s energy efficiency testing pedigree also covers such notable programs as:
- ENERGY STAR (US)
- EnergyGuide Label (US)
- California Energy Commission (CEC) (US)
- Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) (Canada)
- Eco Label (Europe)
- European Energy Label (Europe)
- Energy Label (China)
- Green Mark (Taiwan)
- Australian Energy Rating Label Program (Australia)
Intertek maintains the accreditations, expertise and state-of-the-art facilities throughout its global network of energy efficiency testing laboratories to help manufacturers meet regional and market requirements.
