New decree on labelling to promote energy conservation

The Government issued Decree No 21/2011/ND-CP on March 29 requiring producers and importers to affix equipment and vehicles with energy labels pursuant to the Law on Energy Conservation. The regulation, effective on May 15, provides for two types of energy labels: comparative labels, which provide information on energy consumption, efficiency, and other information to help consumers select energy-saving equipment and vehicles; and certification labels, which certify equipment and vehicles which have the highest energy efficiency compared to those of the same type.

Producers and importers must register for certification to affix energy labels within 60 working days of the effective date of the regulation.

The decree also requires major energy users to apply energy management systems under which they must promulgate energy efficiency and conservation policies and targets; conduct energy audits; and assign staff and propose managerial and technological solutions to promote energy efficiency and conservation.

Major energy users are defined as industrial or agricultural production establishments or transportation units which consume an annual energy volume of 1,000 tonnes of oil equivalent or more, as well as buildings; educational, healthcare, entertainment and sports establishments; hotels; supermarkets; restaurants; and shops with an annual energy volume of 500 tonnes of oil equivalent or more. The decree supersedes Decree No 102/2003/ND-CP of September 2003.
