Implementation Procedure of Energy Star


Program in Japan

Registration procedure

Designated application forms for


company registration and product
registration should be submitted to
METI to participate in this program.
ECCJ is assigned to conduct its
related tasks of the program and
number of activities by METI.

The role of the industry


associations in this
program

The industry associations provide


their technical observations
concerning the products.
The industry associations have
discussions on amendments to the
specifications.

JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information

Technology Industries Association)

JBMIA (Japan Business Machine and Information


Industries Association = former JBMA)

CIAJ (Communications and Industry network


Association of Japan)

Tasks of ECCJ
A. Public Relations

Accepting manufacturers registration and publishing the list of company


names and their products through Internet.
Dissemination and promotion of the Energy Star logo utilizing brochures,
posters,newspapers, and magazines.

B. Surveys

Field survey on labeling and description for products and brochure.


Survey of market shares (penetration rate) of Energy Star-compliant products.
Various surveys aiming at expanding the program to include energy-efficient
guidelines for more products besides office equipment: specifically, surveys
related to the stock and energy intensity or energy efficiency of some products

C. Collecting Information and its Analysis


Collecting and analyzing data and information on labeling programs and
technologies in countries abroad.

(http://www.eccj.or.jp/ene-star/english/search/products.html)

CGI (Common Gateway Interface) is used for our Web site.


How to search for registered products

Select one product among the 8 office equipment products


Select brand name of the product
Select the year of the registered product
Visitors may combine and type in all of the information above.

Visitors may search by wildcard matching brand and


model names - they can obtain the model list by typing in
only the part of the name.

Procedure of Computer Series Registration


When registering a product that has various numbers of models (e.g., BTO (Build to
Order), Customized PC), it is inconvenient to make an application for each model, as so
many combinations will occur depending on its system configuration.
To avert the inconvenience, a manufacturer is advised to register one name of the basic
model as a series name for the series registration. The series registration started in 2000.

A set of materials to be submitted:


a. Registration Form

(Used for general product application)


Attach series at the end of the name of
the model.
A registered company may register the
whole series with one name, or may group
the whole series into several names based
on the product configuration.
(e.g., capacity and combinations of HD
and memory, or other specifications).

b.Compliant Condition
(Used in ECCJ Web site)

Needed in both paper and digital


formats (in a Ms-word format).
Submit a form filled with the
products compliant condition,
attached with a. Registration form.
The documents will be inserted into
the Web site.

Series now registered:

10 registered companies
600 series models
1 million detailed models

c. Detailed Compliant Models Data


(Used under the management of ECCJ)

All detailed models data of Energy Star


Compliant Models shall be submitted to
ECCJ (e.g., in a Ms-Excel format).
The data will be transformed to a MS-Access
format by ECCJ to retain as searchable data.

Public Activities

Public Relations
Dissemination and promotion of the Energy Star logo
utilizing brochures, posters, newspapers,

Energy Star Program in ENEX


ENEX Energy and Environment Exhibition is a
comprehensive exhibition held under the theme of "Energy
Conservation and New Energies enriching Daily Life.
This is hosted by ECCJ and NEDO once a year.

The 26th ENEX was held in February 2002 at two sites:


in Tokyo and Osaka. We had 60,000 visitors over six
days.
Energy Star-compliant products are exhibited
with metering devices to indicate current
power consumption for the promotion of
Energy Star compliant products.

Overview of Energy-saving Labeling


Program
Under the current Energy Efficiency
Law in Japan, manufacturers are

obligated to display the information of a product, such as product name,


model name, energy efficiency rate, and power consumption for the
designated products.
The objective is to help consumers readily compare and choose energy
efficient products when purchasing. Energy-saving Labeling Program,
which has been implemented since August in 2000, serves as a complement
to the obligation under the Law.
It is introduced as a tool for consumers to actually make a relative
comparison of the energy efficiency of the products.
This program has covered only home electronic appliances.
Electric appliances for business use are not covered, because, in most
companies, a purchasing administration department whose staffs have
expertise in energy efficiency is assigned to choose and purchase energy
efficient products.
Currently, Energysaving Labeling Program is promoted as a voluntary
program based on JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards).
Japanese government will consider expanding Top Runner program in
accordance with additional product items.
