China Energy Label

CEL registration for market access with our dedicated support services

Whether you are a manufacturer or importer, energy consuming products intended to be sold on the Chinese market must complete the China Energy Label (CEL) registration process and be listed with the China National Institute of Standardization (CNIS). CEL registration and CNIS approval are required prior to any product being cleared for import or given access to the Chinese market. Following relevant guidelines from the China national GuoBiao (GB) standards and CEL implementation rules, CNIS is the only body authorized to approve products for CEL registration in China. We at TÜV Rheinland ensure short lead times by close contact with local authorities to reliably assist you throughout the CEL registration and its annual renewal. Let us help you by navigating the CEL registration process in order to access and conquer the lucrative Chinese market ! Contact us now !
