APEC Economies

About APEC-ESIS

APEC ESIS provides up-to-date information about energy efficiency standards and labelling that apply to products in the APEC region. 

APEC ESIS allows policy agencies, standards and labelling practitioners, and producers and suppliers of products to see what standards are being developed or adopted in different economies for different products.  Links are provided to further information on relevant standards and organisations.

APEC ESIS is a user-friendly way for APEC economies to maintain up-to-date listings of standards for their economy.  Key contacts for each economy work with the Collaborative Labelling and Appliance Standards Program (CLASP) to keep the listings up to date.  The key economy contacts also serve as points of enquiry.

CLASP maintains APEC ESIS on behalf of the APEC Expert Group on Energy Efficiency and Conservation (EGEE&C). 

The benefits of APEC ESIS: As well as helping to promote regional energy efficiency, APEC ESIS contributes to regional harmonisation of standards and conformance procedures, which results in more rapid trade flows, reduced costs and greater integration of production networks.

Regional and international alignment: APEC ESIS is integrated with CLASP’s global standards and labelling database.  It is also aligned to the Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) initiative, an initiative of the Clean Energy Ministerial and a task under the International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC).

About APEC: The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, or APEC, is the premier forum for facilitating economic growth, cooperation, trade and investment in the Asia-Pacific region.  Decisions made within APEC are reached by consensus and commitments are undertaken on a voluntary basis.  APEC has 21 members - referred to as "member economies" - which account for approximately 40 percent of the world's population, approximately 54 percent of world gross domestic product (GDP) and about 44 percent of world trade.

About APEC EGEE&C: The APEC Expert Group on Energy Efficiency and Conservation (EGEE&C) promotes energy conservation and the application of energy efficiency practices and technologies in the APEC region.  It does this through advancing the application of demonstrated energy efficiency practices and technologies; contributing to international efforts to reduce the adverse impacts of energy production and consumption; and improving the analytical, technical, operational and policy capacity for energy efficiency and conservation within APEC Economies.
