Electric instantaneous or storage water heaters and immersion heaters (HS code(s): 851610)
Proposal for amendments to the legal inspection requirements for electric storage tank water heaters; (5 page(s), in English), (3 page(s), in Chinese)
The "Requirements on Minimum Energy Performance Standard and Energy Efficiency Rating Labelling and Inspection for Electric Storage Tank Water Heaters (Amendment Draft)," proposed by the Bureau of Energy (BOE), Ministry of Economic Affairs, was notified on 2 September 2022 as per G/TBT/N/TPKM/407/Rev.1. As the requirements on the capacity of inner tank are included in the notified amendment draft, the BSMI proposes to remove the requirement of Section 8.11 "Capacity of inner tank" of CNS 11010:2013 from BSMI's testing items to avoid overlapping jurisdiction with the BOE.
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).
