ADVISORY FROM NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL AGENCY (NEA)
Registered suppliers supplying registrable goods must affix the Energy Label on the units that they supply in Singapore. The Energy Label shall be affixed only after the National Environment Agency (NEA) has issued the Certificate of Registration (COR) for the model. Retailers are only allowed to display models that have the label affixed on them.
In order to help consumers better identify the more energy efficient models and spur suppliers to offer more efficient products, the energy rating system for air-conditioners, refrigerators and clothes dryers was revised on 1 September 2014.
