Singapore NEA Energy Efficiency Testing Services

Complying to Singapore energy regulatory standards

Complying to Singapore energy regulatory standards

Certain household electrical appliances supplied in Singapore are regulated by the Singapore National Environmental Agency (NEA) through the Mandatory Energy Labelling scheme (MELS) and the Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS). TÜV SÜD PSB provides testing services to verify that these regulated goods comply with the requirements.


The MELS was introduced to aid Singapore consumers in comparing energy efficiency and making more informed choices when purchasing certain household appliances. Under MELS, regulated products would be labelled according to their energy consumption. TÜV SÜD can conduct tests on the following regulated household appliances:

  • Air Conditioner
  • Clothes Dryer
  • Refrigerators
  • Television
  • Lamps (Incandescent, Compact-Fluorescent, LED)

All registered suppliers supplying regulated goods must affix the Energy Label on the units that they supply in Singapore. The Energy Label shall be affixed only after the National Environment Agency (NEA) has issued the Certificate of Registration (COR) for the model. 


In addition to MELS, suppliers must ensure that goods are able to meet the minimum energy performance standards (MEPS). The MEPS was set to raise the average energy efficiency of regulated goods in the market. TÜV SÜD PSB can carry out the test in accordance with the relevant test standards stipulated by NEA.


TÜV SÜD PSB has more than 40 years of experience in testing and product certification services. Its laboratories and certification body are accredited under Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) - ISO/IEC 17065 and the SAC - Singapore Laboratory Accreditation Scheme (SINGLAS) - ISO/IEC 17025 respectively. We provide testing protocol and international standards for simulations required.
