The new Energy Efficiency (Labelling of Regulated Machinery) Regulations 2017 will come into operation on 1st July 2017 and will provide for mandatory energy efficiency labels on certain types of domestic appliances namely electric ovens, refrigerating appliances, and electric dishwashers.
The Energy Efficiency Management Office (EEMO) is strongly encouraging dealers and importers to start registering controlled appliances listed in the Energy Efficiency (Labelling of Regulated Machinery) Regulations 2017 using the Energy Efficiency Information Management System on: eeims.govmu.org. Test reports and certificates of conformity submitted to the EEMO will be referred to the Mauritius Standards Bureau (MSB) for certification which would entail a fee of Rs. 700 per document certified to be paid to MSB.
