Document ID: JN-10404604470
Subject: Promulgate “Regulations, methods, and inspection measures of energy consumption standards and energy efficiency grade labeling for ice-warm-hot drinking water machines” and enter into force as of the date of December 1st 2016.
In agreement with:
These Regulations are enacted pursuant to Clause 14-4 of “Energy Administration Act”.
1. The ice-warm-hot drinking water machine (Machine) set in this announcement covers goods in compliance with Clause 13516 of Chinese National Standards (CNS), which are subjected to inspection by the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection, MoEA.
2. The Machine shall be subject to measurement of standby power loss of individual water tank capacity for 24 hours (“E24” hereafter) according to regulations set forth in CNS 13516.
Round the E24 measurement to 3 places which shall be equal to or less than the rated value and the energy consumption standards of the Machine (See Appendix 1).
3. Before making or importing the Machine, the supplier shall apply for account ID and password to the Energy Efficiency Grade Labeling Management System (“EEGLMS” hereafter) administered by the central competent authority (CCA) with the following documents:
3.1 The EEGLMS account ID and password application form (Appendix 2).
3.2 Company or commerce registration certificate.
4. The supplier shall apply for the Machine’s energy efficiency grade labeling to relevant CCA with the following documents after its account ID and password have been granted:
4.1 The Machine’s energy efficiency grade labeling registration application form (Appendix 3).
4.2 The Machine’s merchandise verification or type approval certificate. File of color copy of the latter shall be uploaded to the EEGLMS as well.
4.3 Hard or soft copy of safety test reports and energy efficiency test report on the Machine by labs certified by Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection, MoEA and unrelated with the supplier or affiliates invested by the supplier. Hard copy of the reports shall be chopped with official company stamp.
4.4 In case the model of products tested in the energy efficiency test differs from the one applied for energy efficiency grade labeling yet belongs to the same merchandise verification or type approval certificate, the application shall be accompanied with energy efficiency conformity declaration (Appendix 4).
5. The CCA shall approve the energy efficiency grade of the product based on the Machine’s energy efficiency grade table (Appendix 5) according to the rated E24 value given in the energy efficiency test report.
6. The supplier shall have the energy efficiency grade label (Figure 1) attached to the front and visible position of the Machine or noted in the manual included with the product. The supplier shall attach the energy efficiency grade label to the front and visible position of or post the label close to the Machine when merchandising or selling the latter.
7. The energy efficiency grade label mentioned in Item 6 shall comply with the format and color given in Figure 1. The supplier shall not edit the label in any way such that consumers fail to recognize it. The supplier may enlarge the label proportionally.
8. The supplier shall have graph of the Machine contained in catalog used for merchandising or selling it explicitly accompanied by its energy efficiency grade presentation (Figure 2). Information of the Machine presented in text or table shall be added with E24 rated value and energy efficiency grade.
9. The supplier shall apply for the Machine’s energy efficiency grade labeling again before making or importing it in case of the following:
9.1 Design changes which may have impact on energy efficiency grade.
9.2 Model changes.
10. The supplier shall report last year’s unit sales of each model of the Machine before the end of February each year.
11. The CCA may run annual random tests for energy efficiency checks. The supplier shall deliver units of models specified by the CCA to given labs before given date. The E24 values of the test outcome shall be less than or equal to 105% of the rated value and comply with the Machine’s energy efficiency standards.
The CCA shall call the supplier for another test should the first one have failed. The second test shall be made against the same model at twice the quantity given for the first one. The supplier shall foot the bill of the second test. This does not apply to the suppliers who do not undergo the random test due to termination of production or import and have been approved by the CCA for revoking their Machine’s energy efficiency grade labeling.
The CCA shall subject suppliers who do not undergo the random test or the secondary test or who failed the secondary test to Clause 21 and 24 of the Energy Administration Act and revoke its energy efficiency grade labeling certification.
The CCA shall publicize the aforementioned information in EEGLMS according to regulations set forth in the Consumer Protection Law.
12. Units of random test said in Item 11 shall be determined by the Machine made or imported in the last year: Test one for every 5000 units and one for less than 5000 units. The CCA may revise test models and units as required.
