ＥＣＣＪ ＥＣＣＪ Registration procedure Designated application forms for company registration and product registration should be submitted to METI to participate in this program. ECCJ is assigned to conduct its related tasks of the program and number of activities by METI. The role of the industry associations in this program The industry associations provide their technical observations concerning the products. The industry associations have discussions on amendments to the specifications. Implementation Procedure of Energy Star Program in Japan JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association) JBMIA (Japan Business Machine and Information Industries Association = former JBMA) CIAJ (Communications and Industry network Association of Japan)
ＥＣＣＪ ＥＣＣＪ A. Public Relations Accepting manufacturers’ registration and publishing the list of company names and their products through Internet. Dissemination and promotion of the Energy Star logo utilizing brochures, posters,newspapers, and magazines. B. Surveys Field survey on labeling and description for products and brochure. Survey of market shares (penetration rate) of Energy Star-compliant products. Various surveys aiming at expanding the program to include energy-efficient guidelines for more products besides office equipment: specifically, surveys related to the stock and energy intensity or energy efficiency of some products C. Collecting Information and its Analysis Collecting and analyzing data and information on labeling programs and technologies in countries abroad. Tasks of ECCJ
METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) Registered company Product application paper ECCJ 1. Input data (MS-Access) Publicizing on ECCJ Web site 4.

uList of registered manufacturers and model names (http://www.eccj.or.jp/ene-star/english/search/products.html) uCGI (Common Gateway Interface) is used for our Web site. uHow to search for registered products uSelect one product among the 8 office equipment products uSelect brand name of the product uSelect the year of the registered product uVisitors may combine and type in all of the information above. uVisitors may search by “wildcard matching” brand and model names - they can obtain the model list by typing in only the part of the name. Product Search on Web site
Procedure of Computer Series Registration When registering a product that has various numbers of models (e.g., BTO (Build to Order), Customized PC), it is inconvenient to make an application for each model, as so many combinations will occur depending on its system configuration. To avert the inconvenience, a manufacturer is advised to register one name of the basic model as a series name for the series registration. The series registration started in A set of materials to be submitted: b. Compliant Condition (Used in ECCJ Web site) c. Detailed Compliant Models Data (Used under the management of ECCJ) Attach “series” at the end of the name of the model. A registered company may register the whole series with one name, or may group the whole series into several names based on the product configuration. (e.g., capacity and combinations of HD and memory, or other specifications). Needed in both paper and digital formats (in a Ms-word format). Submit a form filled with the product’s compliant condition, attached with “a. Registration form”. The documents will be inserted into the Web site. All detailed models data of Energy Star Compliant Models shall be submitted to ECCJ (e.g., in a Ms-Excel format). The data will be transformed to a MS-Access format by ECCJ to retain as searchable data. Series now registered: ･ 10 registered companies ･ 600 series models ･ 1 million detailed models a. Registration Form (Used for general product application)

ＥＣＣＪ ＥＣＣＪ Energy Star Program in ENEX “Energy and Environment Exhibition” isENEX “Energy and Environment Exhibition” is a comprehensive exhibition held under the theme of "Energy Conservation and New Energies enriching Daily Life.” This is hosted by ECCJ and NEDO once a year. The 26th ENEX was held in February 2002 at two sites: in Tokyo and Osaka. We had 60,000 visitors over six days. Energy Star-compliant products are exhibited with metering devices to indicate current power consumption for the promotion of Energy Star compliant products.

ＥＣＣＪ ＥＣＣＪ Cumulative Number of Energy-Star Product Models registered in Japan (As of March 2002) During the past six years, registered models of seven equipment products together number over 15,000. The program currently has about 100 registered companies. Number of models Computers Monitors Printers Fax Machines Copiers Scanners Multifunction Devices Number of registered companies
92% 40 ％ FY 1995 FY 1998 COMPUTERS 98% 31 ％ MONITORS 96% 66 ％ PRINTERS 24% 14 ％ FAX MACHINES 75% 38 ％ COPIERS 49% N/A (*2) MULTI-FUNCTION DEVICES 21% SCANNERS FY 1995 FY 1998 The Market Share of Energy Star-compliant Products in Japan (*1) The market shares (penetration rate) is the ratio of Energy Star-compliant products out of all products manufactured by the registered companies,covering only the previous years of the survey. The data are obtained through surveys conducted by ECCJ in FY1996 and FY1999. (*2) Multi-function Devices and Scanners have been covered since February N/A (*2)
ＥＣＣＪ ＥＣＣＪ Procedure to remove product model names from the Web site (1) 1. Listing of the target models ECCJ makes a list of models that have been on the Web site for more than four years and presents it to the industry associations and non-member registered companies. 2. Distribution of the list The industry associations distribute the list to the respective member companies. 3. Selection of specific models to be removed Each registered company checks the list and selects the specific models to be removed, and reports to the industry associations.
ＥＣＣＪ ＥＣＣＪ Procedure to remove product model names from the Web site (2) 4. Submission of the model names to be removed The industry associations collect the lists from respective member companies and submit them to ECCJ. (Non-member companies submit them directly to ECCJ.) 5. Removal of models from the Web site ECCJ removes the models from the Web site, not from its original database, in accordance with the submitted list. 6. Recounting of the official number of registered models The official number of the models that ECCJ announces to the public is the number of the models listed on the Web site. The removed models from the Web site are no longer counted.

Under the current “Energy Efficiency Law” in Japan, manufacturers are obligated to display the information of a product, such as product name, model name, energy efficiency rate, and power consumption for the designated products. The objective is to help consumers readily compare and choose energy efficient products when purchasing. “Energy-saving Labeling Program,” which has been implemented since August in 2000, serves as a complement to the obligation under the Law. It is introduced as a tool for consumers to actually make a relative comparison of the energy efficiency of the products. This program has covered only home electronic appliances. Electric appliances for business use are not covered, because, in most companies, a purchasing administration department whose staffs have expertise in energy efficiency is assigned to choose and purchase energy efficient products. Currently, “Energy–saving Labeling Program” is promoted as a voluntary program based on JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards). Japanese government will consider expanding Top Runner program in accordance with additional product items. Overview of Energy-saving Labeling Program
