Energy Efficiency System
The energy consumption efficiency rating system is a mandatory reporting system to make it easier for consumers to purchase efficient energy-saving products and to allow manufacturers (import) to produce and sell energysaving
products from the production (import) stage.
Under this system, efficiency ratings are divided into grades 1 to 5 according to energy consumption efficiency or energy usage, and the Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS), which is the lower limit of energy consumption efficiency, is applied.

The manufacturer and importer of the items subject to the energy consumption efficiency rating system must test the product according to the announced measurement
method and report it to the Korea Energy Corporation within 90 days.
The reported product information is disclosed through the website, etc., and in the case of unreported products, a fine of up to 5 million won may be imposed under the Energy Use Rationalization Act.
Products not within the announced scope of application are not subject to regulation of this system, so products cannot be reported or energy consumption efficiency grade labels cannot be attached.
The energy consumption efficiency grade label is a label that is divided into grades 1 to 5 according to the efficiency of the product in order to promote the
distribution of high-efficiency products by improving the discrimination ability of energy-saving products.
The closer the product is to the first grade, the more energy-saving product, and if you use the first grade product, you can save about 30-40% of energy compared to the fifth grade product. This label is applied to 22 items out of 32 items (excluding cars), excluding fans, incandescent bulbs, fluorescent lamps, internal lamps, adapters and chargers, transformers, electric heaters, electric stoves, electric ranges, and set-top boxes (10 items). The following separate energy consumption efficiency labels are applied to 10 items that do not apply the energy consumption efficiency rating label.
