    Energy Labeling Requirements

    SCOPE AND GENERAL

    Scope

    This Qatar standard specifies the performance and energy labeling

    requirements for electric clothes washing machines intended for household and

    similar use, in order that it may carry a valid energy efficiency label.

    In particular, this standard specifies the following:

    (a) Projected annual energy consumption.

    (b) Comparative energy consumption.

    (c) Energy efficiency rating.

    (d) Star rating.

    (e) Some of the requirements for energy label validity.

    (f) Performance criteria for energy labeling approval.

    (g) Test report format and printing requirements for clothes washing

    machines energy labels.

    Note: This standard does not specify safety requirements which is covered by Qs

    GSO IEC 60335- -

    Definitions

    For the purposes of this standard, the definitions given in IEC 60456 and those

    below apply:

    Check test a full or part test in accordance with IEC 60456 to verify the

    performance and energy consumption of an individual brand and model

    registered for energy labeling.

    Tested energy consumption (Et) the measured energy consumption of a

    single unit when tested in accordance with IEC 60456. (Units: kilowatt-hours.)

    Projected annual energy consumption (PAEC) the estimate of energy used

    by a model or single unit during one years use It assumes a particular number

    of uses in one year. (See also Clause 2.3.) (Units: kilowatt-hours/year.)

    Comparative energy consumption (CEC) the nominal energy consumption

    of a model of clothes washing machine. It is based on the PAEC estimated for

    the model. (See also Clause 2.4.) The CEC appears on the energy label.

    (Units: kilowatt-hours/year.)

    Energy efficiency rating (EER) an indication of the claimed energy

    efficiency of a model. A higher EER indicates a higher energy efficiency. It is

    derived from the CED. (See also Clause 2.6.) The EER appears as a

    continuous red band on the energy label. (Dimensionless.)

    Star rating the number of stars displayed on the energy label. It is

    calculated by rounding the EER down to the nearest whole number. (See also

    Clause 2.7.) (Dimensionless.)

    Family of models a range of models of the one brand, registered under one

    application, where each of the models on the application has the same relevant

    physical characteristics, comparative energy consumption, energy efficiency

    rating and performance characteristics The term model is synonymous with

    family of models

    Variant a product variant is an alternative version of a product or family of

    products that has the same specifications and the same model number or other

    form of designation as another registered version of the product except that it

    has a different average PAEC (PAECav). (See also Clause 2.4.2.)

    MEASURED QUANTITIES Quantities used in conjunction with this

    standard shall be measured in accordance with the standard mentioned in 1.2.1.

    MEPS AND CALCULATIONS FOR THE ENERGY LABEL

    GENERAL This Section sets out the equations and procedures for calculating

    values of the CEC, EER and the star rating, which appear on an energy label

    and in the application for registration of an appliance for energy labeling.

    The process consists of measuring the tested energy consumption (Et) of each

    unit tested, then calculating the projected annual energy consumption (PAEC)

    of the unit. The values of PAEC for the units tested for registration are used to

    calculate the comparative energy consumption (CEC) for the model. The CEC,

    the spin performance and the rated capacity are then used to calculate the

    energy efficiency rating (EER) and the star rating.

    Note: For a complete example of calculations carried out on a typical set of test

    results, refer to Appendix A.

    Number of tests and processing of data

    Number of units required For the purpose of determining the CEC of a

    model for registration, three separate units of the nominated model shall be

    tested for energy consumption in accordance with the standard
