Energy Saving Labeling Program: Japan

Energy Saving Labeling Program: Japan logo

According to the Energy Conservation Law, energy efficiency labeling of designated products is mandatory. The label has to contain the product name, model, energy consumption efficiency ratio and power/fuel consumption.

In this case the label does not require presentation of energy consumption performance parameters for product as a relative comparison with other products but an achievement rate in relation to the Top Runner target.
