China Market Access for Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency approval


China’s energy efficiency labeling management system, also known as the China Energy Label (CEL) is an energy consumption label for products manufactured and imported into China. Manufacturers of specified electronic devices are obligated to attach the CEL label to their goods. This helps to inform Chinese consumers about the product’s energy efficiency. The label includes the product’s energy efficiency class (1-5) as well as information regarding its energy consumption.


The CEL programme establishes a mandatory requirement for manufacturers and importers to complete the CEL registration process with CELC and label products from CEL Catalogue before selling or importing products in the country. Mandatory labelling is required for certain products.


Anyway, along with the CEL, the Chinese government establishes the energy efficiency standards that sets us mandatory energy minimum standards for products to regulate the nation’s energy consumption. Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) are required for many products.


The China Energy Label Center (CELC) is responsible for developing the CEL Catalogue and managing the label registration system. The CELC is under control of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) and the Certification and Accreditation Administration (CNCA).


Currently, the following product categories require CEL:


  • Air conditioners
