Announcement on DGSM Enforcement Phases for New Scope of Energy Efficiency (EE) Labeling Program

Relevant certified enterprises:

Since the mandatory implementation of energy efficiency labels for air conditioning products in 2019, Directorate General for Standardization and Metrology (DGSM) of the Ministry of Commerce, Industry & Investment Promotion (MoCIIP) of the Sultanate of Oman have once again announced the phased implementation of Energy Efficiency(EE) labeling programs for electrical clothes washing machines, water heaters, refrigerators in three phases starting from December 8, 2023.

To facilitate effective traceability and verification of product data, the Omani regulatory authority has developed an online registration system called the Hazm platform (currently in the testing phase). Upon formal activation, the mentioned products will be required to undergo technical assessments at DGSM-designated Notified Body and register through the platform to obtain EE labels before being eligible for sale in the Omani market.
