CEL: New Layout with QR-Code for the China Energy Label Announced

8. June 2016

The new layout for the China Energy Label (CEL) was introduced at the annual Energy Efficiency Conference, held in Beijing at the end of May 2016. The most important change is that a QR-Code was added to the label which makes it easier for customers to check additional energy efficiency information by using their smartphones. The new label and related regulatory changes were implemented on June 1, 2016.
The annual Energy Efficiency Conference is organized to further promote the energy efficiency of electronic products and the “green development” of China. Leading manufacturers are using this event every year for new product launches and presentation.
The CEL label was implemented in 2005 and now covers 33 energy-using products from 12 product groups in 5 different categories, including household appliances, industrial equipment, commercial equipment, office lighting products and electronic office products.

During the conference the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), Ministry for Industry and AQSIQ jointly published the first catalogue with the 21 “leader” companies for in total 150 energy efficient products.
