The Energy Efficiency Labeling Program is a component of the Government Regulation No. 70/2009 on Energy Conservation.

The program is intended to provide information to consumers about the energy efficiency level of a product, as well as to encourage manufactures to increase the level of energy efficiency of products that they produce. The labeling program currently covers air conditioning (voluntary), compact fluorescent lightbulbs (mandatory), refrigerators (voluntary) and freezers (voluntary). Programs to cover rice cookers, clothes washers, irons, ballasts, televisions, and fans are under development as of early 2015.

The labeling system uses a star‐rating system of 4 stars and includes information about the absolute energy efficiency of the product (kWh/year). The star rating shows the product’s energy efficiency rank relative to similar products in the market, and is assigned by an independent and accredited test facility that tested the product.
