· E-Standby

The 'Standby Power Reduction Program' is a system that introduces the adoption of power saving mode and minimization of standby power in unused waiting times, arbitrarily displays energy saving marks on products that meet standby power reduction standards, and obligates warning signs for products that are not in service.

Related Acts and subordinate statutes and notice :

Article 18 of the Energy Rationalization Act (designation of products subject to standby power reduction), Article 19 (designation of products subject to standby power warning display, etc.), Article 20 (indication of products subject to standby power reduction), and Article 21 (follow-up management of products subject to standby power reduction)

※ e-Standby power: Electricity consumed when electric devices such as computers and monitors are on standby-mode

· E-Standby

The devices that are automatically switched to energy saving mode, minimizes standby power and meet the standby power reduction standards are allowed to bear energy saving label. Those that do not meet the standards must bear warning labels.

· Test Inquiry and Declaration

A domestic manufacturer(domestic product) and a domestic importer(imported product) must request a test, and a test report must be issued in the name of the applicant.

If multiple domestic importers import the same product from the same overseas manufacturer, multiple importers can request a test at the same time and each importer can receive a test report written as a applicant. (However, all importers must report their products individually to the Korea Energy Agency.)

If the product's efficiency performance does not meet the minimum consumption efficiency standard, the test report stipulates that the relevant information shall be specified.

These products are strictly prohibited by domestic production and sales by law, and violations may result in a fine of up to 20 million won(US $15,300) under the Energy Use Rationalization Act.

Manufacturers and importers of items subject to the energy consumption efficiency rating system must report their products within 90 days according to the results of the product test at the efficiency test institution, etc. in accordance with the announced technical standards and measurement methods.
