1 Saudi Energy Efficiency program 14 May 2013 Working session on the implementation of the modified Saudi standard SASO 2663/2012 Energy labeling and minimum energy performance requirements for air-conditioners

2 1 Agenda Modified Saudi standard SASO 2663/2012 and energy efficiency label licensing (for imported and locally manufactured air-conditioners) Enforcement mechanisms at borders (for imported air-conditioners) Enforcement mechanisms in-Kingdom (for imported and locally manufactured air- conditioners)

3 2 Approach In order to revise, modify and enforce the Saudi standard SASO 2663/2012, the technical team of the Saudi Energy Efficiency Program adopted an approach based on: Consensus & Unanimity

4 3 Approach (continued) Working sessions with the Deputy Minister of Commerce & Industry and representatives from the ministry Input on mandate and governance Ministry of Commerce & Industry Working sessions with the SASO Governor and Deputy Governor, as well as weekly input from SASO representatives Input on standards, label and governance Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization Working sessions with DG of Restrictions Dept. and representatives from Customs Input on current practices, tools and infrastructure Saudi Customs Workshop with all local & int. private testing laboratories Input on capacity building and best practices Int. & local labs Local & international manufacturers, importers & distributors Workshops with local and international air-conditioner manufacturers and regular individual meetings Input on technical capacity ASHRAE / AHRI Workshops with the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration & Air- Conditioning Engineers, and the Air- conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Institute Input on best-practices

5 4 1 January September 2013 May SASO Board approved the modified standard SASO 2663 as proposed by the Saudi Energy Efficiency Program and updated standard was issued Source: Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization The Saudi Energy Efficiency Program, in collaboration with relevant stakeholders, started modifying the Saudi standard SASO 2663 and proposed updating the Minimum Energy Performance Standards Phase 2 Details in the next slide December 2012 Phase 1 Details in the next slide Saudi standard SASO 2663/2012: Energy labeling and minimum energy performance requirements for air-conditioners The Saudi standard SASO 2663/2007 specified 7.5 as the minimum energy performance standard (MEPS) for the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) for air- conditioners without differentiation by type or capacity SASO proposed to raise the minimum energy performance standard (MEPS) for the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) to 8.5 in 2009 The minimum energy performance standard (MEPS) for the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) was not raised to 8.5 EER due to delays in enforcement (until mid 2010)

6 5 Star rating to be applied from 3 stars and above only Air Conditioner appliance type Cooling capacity limit (CC) (Btu/h) Mandatory EER (Btu/h)/watt Phase 1: 7 September 2013 Mandatory EER (Btu/h)/watt Phase 2: 1 January 2015 At testing conditions T1 (35°C) T1 (35°C) T3 (46°C) T1 (35°C) T3 (46°C) Window type CC <18, ,000 CC< 24, CC 24, Split type and other types All Capacities Source: Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization Saudi standard SASO 2663/2012: Energy labeling and minimum energy performance requirements for air-conditioners

7 6 Old LabelNew Label Information about the EER Information about annual electricity consumption New SASO logo Legal mention to mandate presence of energy efficiency label before selling Source: Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization New energy efficiency label for air-conditioners

8 7 2 months before implementation: Stop certificates of conformity that are not compliant with the modified standard Reminder announcements for the implementation of the modified standard July 2013 May 2013 June 2013 August September January January 2015 SASO 2663/2012 will be regularly updated in accordance with the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers standard, ASHRAE 90.1 Implementation of the modified standard Phase 1: -Imported air- conditioners -Locally manufac- tured air- conditioners Implementation of the modified standard Phase 2: -Imported air- conditioners -Locally manufactured air- conditioners -Air- conditioners available for sale in the market Implementation of the modified standard Phase 1: -Air- conditioners available for sale in the market Phased implementation of the modified Saudi standard SASO 2663/2012

9 8 Energy efficiency label licensing procedure for imported and locally manufactured air-conditioners - SASO Starting from 7/9/2013, SASO will not issue licenses to air-conditioners that do not comply with phase 1 of the modified standard; and starting 1/1/2015 for phase 2 The application submitted to the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality organization by importers and local manufacturers should include: Completed new registration forms Energy efficiency tests reports from laboratories accredited by an entity recognized by International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) or Saudi Accreditation Committee (SAC) Application Submission After accepting the application, the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization issues a license to use the new energy efficiency label and the corresponding number of stars for a period of one year only The license will be for the tested model only Licensing Certificate of conformity Certificates of conformity not compliant with the modified standard will not be accepted starting from a two-month period before the date of the implementation in order to ensure that non-compliant products will not be imported after 7 September 2013

10 9 Energy efficiency label licensing procedure for imported and locally manufactured air-conditioners - SASO The license issued by SASO to use the energy efficiency label gives its holder the right to use the label and this does not imply the right to import the product or trade it in the market The license is complementary to the surveillance work conducted by Saudi Customs and the Ministry of Commerce and Industry The license design has been updated During the transition period from today until 7 September 2013 : The license will be issued according to the new design while keeping the validity period of 2 years Old licenses will be replaced with new ones and the recipients will be notified that their license is still valid for the remaining period without any extra charges Old labels will be replaced with new ones Recipients of licenses not compliant with the modified standard will be informed that they will maintain the right to use the label but the modified standard will prohibit them from selling their products in the market after the specified dates for each phase For the period after 7 September 2013 The license will be issued according to the new design and the validity will be for one year only License to use the energy efficiency label issued by SASO

11 10 Agenda Modified Saudi standard SASO 2663/2012 and energy efficiency label licensing (for imported and locally manufactured air-conditioners) Enforcement mechanisms at borders (for imported air-conditioners) Enforcement mechanisms in-Kingdom (for imported and locally manufactured air- conditioners)

12 11 97% OF IMPORTS ENTER THROUGH 4 PORTS Ports of entry of air-conditioners AIR-CONDITIONERS IMPORT STATISTIC 2012 Source: Saudi Customs 2,668,013 3,129 # of imported air-conditioner units # of shipments Samples are taken from shipments and only safety tests are conducted

13 12 Enforcement mechanism of the modified standard and sampling plan at border/ports of entry - Saudi Customs Inspection of the shipment to make sure of: -The presence of correct labels for energy efficiency and safety of the product -The presence of the product in the database of SASO Shipment Inspection (Customs) Tests (Private labs) Sampling of air-conditioners as per the safety sampling plan specified in the Kingdom Samples are sent to accredited private testing labs Sampling (Customs) If the test results are positive, the shipment is allowed into the market If the test results are negative, the shipment is not allowed into the market Test Results Accredited private testing labs conduct safety and energy efficiency tests Energy efficiency tests will be conducted in accordance with the modified SASO standard The importer will bear the cost of the test as is the case for the safety tests Customs will not allow the import or entry of air-conditioners not compliant with the modified standard Phase 1: starting 7/9/2013 Phase 2: starting 1/1/2015

14 13 Agenda Modified Saudi standard SASO 2663/2012 and energy efficiency label licensing (for imported and locally manufactured air-conditioners) Enforcement mechanisms at borders (for imported air-conditioners) Enforcement mechanisms in-Kingdom (for imported and locally manufactured air-conditioners)

15 14 Enforcement mechanism for locally manufactured air- conditioners at production line – MoCI Production line inspection to make sure of: -The presence of correct labels for energy efficiency and safety of the product -The presence of the product in the database of SASO Accredited private testing labs conduct safety and energy efficiency tests Energy efficiency tests will be conducted in accordance with the modified SASO standard The local manufacturer will bear the cost of the test as is the case for imported products and as is the process for safety tests MoCI will not allow locally manufactured air-conditioners not compliant with the modified standard to be sold in the Saudi market Phase 1: starting 7/9/2013 Phase 2: starting 1/1/2015 Take one sample of each model currently in production Samples are sent to accredited private testing labs If the test results are positive, the product is allowed into the market If the test results are negative, the product is not allowed into the market Production line Inspection (MoCI) Tests (Private labs) Sampling (MoCI) Test Results

16 15 Enforcement mechanism for locally manufactured and imported air-conditioners in-Kingdom – MoCI Inspection of air-conditioners displayed at retailers and distributors to make sure of: -The existence of correct labels for energy efficiency and safety of the product -The presence of the product in the database of SASO Retailers & distributors Inspection (MoCI) Accredited private testing labs conduct safety and energy efficiency tests Energy efficiency tests will be conducted in accordance with the modified SASO standard The manufacturer/importer will bear the cost of the test if the result is negative The ministry will bear the cost of the test if the result is positive Tests (Private labs) Sampling of air-conditioners according to the sampling plan specified in the Kingdom Samples are sent to accredited private testing labs Sampling (MoCI) If the test results are positive, the product is allowed to be sold in the market If the test results are negative, the dealer or distributor will be punished and the air-conditioner will be pulled from the market Test Results MoCI will not allow the sale of air-conditioners not compliant with the modified standard Phase 1: starting 1/1/2014 Phase 2: starting 1/1/2015
