India to regulate Energy Saving Labeling for UHD Televisions

On August 3, 2022, the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) of India announced the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (Particulars and Manner of their Display on Labels of UHD Television) Regulations, 2022, and is soliciting opinions for 30 days. The proposed regulation specifies items to be displayed on the label, the design of the label, the time limit for display, etc., and new energy saving standards are stipulated in a separate notice issued by the Ministry of Power. It should be noted that evaluation based on the current energy saving standards will be effective until the end of December 2022, and is expected to become mandatory from 2023.

The scope of coverage for UHD TV under the current scheme is “LED-backlit LCD TVs, OLED TVs, quantum dot LED TVs, and micro-LED TVs used to produce and sell UHD TVs manufactured, sold, or imported into India, with resolutions of 3840 × 2160 pixels (4K) and 7680 × 4320 pixels (8K), powered only by an external power source that does not exceed 250V AC and 50Hz.”
