A public consultation on the proposed inclusion of three additional products under the fourth phase of the Mandatory Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme (MEELS) was launched today.
These products include Light Emitting Diode (LED) lamps, gas cookers and gas instantaneous water heaters.
The consultation period will end on May 31.
The MEELS was introduced in 2008 under the Energy Efficiency (Labelling of Products) Ordinance, requiring energy labels to be shown on all prescribed products for supply in Hong Kong to enable the public to select energy efficient appliances and save more energy.
The scope of product coverage was planned to be expanded in phases.
People can express their views by email to the Electrical & Mechanical Services Department.
