Energy Saving Label Program

The Japanese Energy Saving Label Program is a mandatory marking and was implemented in 2018. The applicable standards are also called “Top Runner Standards”. Over 30 product groups must meet these standards.

Self-Declaration and manufacturer test reports are accepted for most product groups. Only LEDs have to be tested in a registered Japanese test lab.

The energy efficiency of the product is required to be marked on the product. A E-Mark can be labeled on a voluntary basis. A green mark shows that the product meets the standards, a red mark shows that the product does not meet the standard.

Products for retail trade such as Refrigerators and Air Conditions also have to show 5-star rating on the label. Not every product has to necessarily meet the standards but the weighted average efficiency of the devices produced per year must meet the Top Runner Standards. The manufacturer is required to announce the weighted average efficiency every year.

 

Marking

The following information have to be shown in the energy efficiency label:

  • Product name
  • Model
  • Energy Consumption efficiency ratio
  • Power/Fuel consumption

The Energy Saving Label must be marked in the product manual or on the product directly.
