Korea Energy Efficiency System MEPS/E-standby/HECP

In order to popularize and expand energy green and environmentally friendly power supplies, save energy, reduce carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and enable consumers to purchase energy-efficient power supplies first, South Korea has introduced an energy efficiency certification system since the 1990s. Its control agency is KEMCO (Korea Energy Management Corporation), and the testing agencies mainly include KTL and KTC. The power supply needs to comply with KMEPS regulations. According to the adapter and standard, there are three main categories:
1. Energy efficiency rating system MEPS
The power supply is divided into 1 to 5 levels according to energy efficiency and energy usage. The lower limit of energy efficiency is the obligation system applicable to the Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS: Minimum Energy Performance Standard).
The Korean government has introduced a mandatory energy efficiency registration and marking system in 1992, using minimum consumption efficiency standards (MEPS) 1-5 labels to identify adapters. In order to expand the popularization of energy-saving power supplies, the energy consumption rate rating system assumes the following three obligations for domestic manufacturers (domestic) and domestic importers (imports): ① Obligation to affix energy consumption rate rating labels; ② Obligation to declare adapters; ③ Required Meet the minimum consumption rate standards, etc.
2. E-standby with low power consumption system
The South Korean government has also introduced the E-Standby certification system that has been gradually mandatory since 1999.
The standby energy saving warning sign (yellow) shall be affixed to the power supply that does not meet the standard requirements. On the contrary, if it is satisfied, an energy saving sign (smile sign) is added.
3. HECP, a high-efficiency energy equipment system
The Korean government introduced the voluntary High-efficiency Appliance Certification program in 1996, which is a certification system that evaluates the inspection results of energy efficiency and quality tests and requires that they meet certain standards.
