Standards and Labeling Program – Fiji Islands (2005 - 2007)
The project aimed to design and implement a mandatory energy labelling scheme and minimum energy performance standards for residential appliances in Fiji, starting with refrigerators and freezers and expanding to other appliances. The project also identified and prioritised the training needs of local institutions, agencies, authorities, and private sector organisations to implement the mandatory standards and labelling programme. Lessons learned from the programme in Fiji served as foundation to the implementation of a regional standards and labelling programme in the Pacific Island Countries.
