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

13. September 2016

As already announced in an earlier news, the new layout for the China Energy Label (CEL) was introduced at the annual Energy Efficiency Conference 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 and will become compulsory on October 1, 2016. The import of products with the old CEL label may lead to trouble with the Chinese customs. For household water coolers the new regulations will become effective on January 1, 2017.

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.

If you would like to know more about CEL certification or need support with the application for the new CEL label, please take a look at our CEL section on our website. For more detailed information please download our free booklet “CEL – The Booklet” here.
