In Belarus certain regulations on the energy efficiency of technical devices have been in effect since 2017. Mostly it affects household appliances such as refrigerators, televisions, ovens, washing machines, dishwashers and others. These devices must be marked with an energy label.
Certification of household appliances is defined in the Decree of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus No. 849 "On some questions of conformity assessment in the National System for Conformity Confirmation of the Republic of Belarus" dated October 21, 2016.
