EMSD terminates supply of dehumidifier under Energy Efficiency (Labelling of Products) Ordinance
******************************************************************************************
     The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) today (September 20) removed a dehumidifier from the record of listed models under the Energy Efficiency (Labelling of Products) Ordinance as it failed to reach the energy efficiency performance submitted to the EMSD for assignment of a reference number at the time. 

     Supply of the dehumidifier concerned is not allowed in Hong Kong with effect from today. Information regarding the dehumidifier is as follows:

Brand: Philco
Model: PTV10D
Reference number: D160002

     The EMSD selects samples of the listed models regularly for compliance monitoring tests to check whether they conform to the energy efficiency performance shown on the energy labels concerned. As the test result of the dehumidifier above showed that the energy efficiency grade and energy factor of the model could not reach the energy efficiency performance submitted to the EMSD for assignment of a reference number at the time, the EMSD decided to remove the dehumidifier from the record of listed models.

     The EMSD served a notice under the Ordinance to the importer concerned, Gilman Group Limited. Gilman has published a newspaper notice today announcing the termination of supply of the dehumidifier concerned.

     For details, please contact Gilman's customer service hotline at 8210 8210 or email [email protected]
