Electric storage drink water heaters (C.C.C. Code: 8516.10.00.00.9C); - Electric instantaneous or storage water heaters and immersion heaters (HS 851610)
Proposal for amendment to the legal inspection regulation for electric storage drink water heaters (6 page(s), in English; 5 page(s), in Chinese)
Electric storage drink water heaters have been subject to mandatory inspection under the Commodity Inspection Act by the Bureau of Standards Metrology and Inspection (BSMI) since 1 January 1992. In line with the energy policy, the BSMI proposes to require that electric storage drink water heaters be subject to Sections 10.7 "capacity of inner tank test" and 10.8 "standardized standby loss of every 24 hours Est,24 test" of CNS 12623, where the measured value (Est,24) shall comply with that stated in "Requirements on Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS) for electric storage tank boiling water heaters." The conformity assessment procedures for products subject to this notified measure remain the same, i.e. Registration of Products Certification (RPC) or Type-approved Batch Inspection (TABI).
