Belarus’s regulatory authority recently confirmed its Energy Efficiency (EE) Approval and Energy Labelling (EL) requirements, and application procedure as follows:

Energy Efficiency

  1. AC-powered household electrical appliances will require EE Certification.
  2. Certification can be obtained either via local testing or via a paperwork-only process based on test reports issued by accredited ISO/IEC 17025 third-party testing laboratories.
  3. Mandatory surveillance will be performed once every two years. A decision on whether the surveillance procedure will be performed based on the acceptance of CIG023 reports (paperwork-only) or via local testing will be made at a later stage.

  5. Certificates will be valid for 5 years.
  6. Although requirements for EE compliance come into force on September 1, 2017 and July 1, 2018 depending on product scope, manufacturers can obtain EE Certification in advance which will be dated with the planned implemented dates.
  7. Products that have already been introduced on Belarus market before September 1, 2017 and July 1, 2018 will not be affected.
