In 2017 Belarus, implemented mandatory energy efficiency and energy labeling requirements.

With the latest amendment to resolution No. 849, the list of products subject to mandatory energy efficiency requirements has been updated and clarified. The amended version is now implemented for Belarusian market access.

For products included in the list, compliance with the Energy Efficiency requirements is ensured on the base of national standards, based on the corresponding European Directive. In addition, an energy label in Russian language, a product fiche in Russian language and a National Certificate of Conformity (STB certification scheme) may be required, depending on the product category.

If the national approval STB is required, it is necessary to involve a local accredited certification body for the issuance of a certificate covering energy efficiency requirements.
