Description:

The Federal Law No. 261-FZ “On Energy Conservation and Increase of Energy Efficiency" established a mandatory energy labelling scheme in Russia. 

The Law obliges manufacturers or importers of certain types of goods to determine their energy efficiency class according to rules which are to be established by a state authority based on principles to be adopted by the Russian Government, and to make the relevant disclosure of such class in the technical documentation accompanying goods, as well as through markings and labels they carry.

These provisions will take effect with respect to household energy-consuming appliances from January 1, 2011, and to PCs, other computer hardware and office equipment from January 1, 2012. The Russian Government is to approve a list of other goods to be subject to these requirements.

The Russian labelling scheme was designed on the basis of the existing European energy-efficiency labelling scheme. Energy classes of devices are just like in the EU marked by Latin characters from A to G. The most energy effective appliances correspond to the first “A” class, the most energy consuming correspond to the last “G” class.

The information on energy efficiency of an appliance can be found not only in the technical specifications, but on a special label that manufacturer is obligated to place in a prominent place on the product.
