The High efficiency equipment certification programme certifies equipment as being high efficiency. The programme is a voluntary scheme operated by the Ministry of Knowledge Economy and the Korea Energy management Corporation (KEMCO). Certified products may bear the "High-efficiency Equipment Label" after acquiring high-efficiency equipment certificates issued by KEMCO. Manufacturers seeking certification must submit an application and appropriate documents, including a performance testing report undertaken by a designated testing facility, to KEMCO. Currently, 41 products are targeted by the scheme, including fluorescent lamps and boilers, and the scope is to be expanded in the future.
