What is the China
Energy Label Registration?

The China Energy Efficiency License or the China Energy Label (CEL) applies to a great number of electronic devices and classifies them based on energy efficiency. It was implemented in 2005 to encourage manufacturing of more energy efficient electronic devices. In addition, the classification increase transparency for consumers to better identify the energy consumption of a product.

The regulation also defines the minimum requirements for the energy efficiency of products. The devices must not be sold in China if the requirement are not met. Since 2005 the regulations have been updated and several product groups have been added to CEL. With these measures China aims to meet their energy saving goal.
