Minimum Energy Performance Standards for Electric Motors

Last updated: 5 December 2019

Single-phase induction motors and three-phase induction motors have been incorporated into the list of items for inspection by the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection (BSMI).


However, although low-voltage single-phase induction motors and low-voltage three-phase squirrel-cage induction motors are included in the list of items for inspection, due to the lack of performance testing laboratories for certain motor products and the fact that the majority of these products are subordinate to other imported equipment and systems, control at the border is difficult to enforce. Therefore, currently energy efficiency is not enforced at customs and when BSMI conducts the certification of products within specific series or families of product lines, safety is the main consideration and MEPS control remains excluded from the certification process.
