Philippines 菲律宾

[法规草案] 2022 年 8 月,菲律宾能源部发布通知草案,提议修改菲律宾能源标签计划 (PELP) 指南,并涵盖更多耗能产品。 根据本通告草案,PELP 将涵盖以下能源消耗产品 (ECP):

  • 空间冷却设备
  • 制冷器具
  • 多媒体设备
  • 照明产品
  • 洗衣机产品
  • 熨烫设备
  • 烹饪和食品加工设备
  • 热水器
  • 信息通信技术设备
  • 小家电

PELP 涵盖的能源消耗产品 (ECP),无论是否有规定的产品最低能源性能 (MEPP) 要求,都应贴有能源标签,该标签将指定产品型号的能效等级,如 PELP 实施指南所述。 如果颁布,这些要求将在至少两种普遍发行的报纸上发表后 15 天生效。

In August 2022, the Philippine Department of Energy issued this Draft Circular proposing to amend some sections of the Philippine Energy Labeling Program (PELP) Guidelines (DC2020-06-0015) and to also cover more energy consuming products under the program. 

Per this Draft Circular, the PELP would cover the following Energy Consuming Products (ECPs):

  • space cooling appliances;
  • refrigerating appliances;
  • multimedia appliances;
  • lighting products;
  • laundry appliances;
  • ironing appliances;
  • cooking and food processing appliances;
  • water heating appliances;
  • ICT Equipment; and
  • small appliances.

The aforementioned additions shall be included within the coverage of the PELP upon the recommendation of the Energy Utilization Management Bureau (EUMB).

PELP-covered ECPs, with or without a prescribed Minimum Energy Performance for Products (MEPP) requirement, shall bear the energy label which would specify the energy efficiency rating of the product model, as prescribed under the PELP Implementing Guidelines.

If enacted, these requirements would take effect 15 days following publication in at least two newspapers that are of general circulation.
