SGS Obtains SASO Energy Efficiency Standard Accreditation
The Energy Efficiency Label for electrical appliances is an awareness label that provides consumers with reliable ways to make comparisons of electrical appliances according to their efficiency in the consumption of electric energy, expressed in a number of stars shown on the label. The more stars are shown, the lower energy consumption is produced by the appliance. The Energy Efficiency Label also includes some basic information about the product (e.g. type of device, model and brand, electric energy consumption and test standard).
