Goodbye to "factory direct" retailers?

From 1 July 2015, incandescent lamps, compact fluorescent lamps with integrated ballasts (CFLi) and LED lamps must meet minimum energy performance standards and comply with mandatory energy labelling requirements. To allow lamp importers, manufacturers and retailers time to clear their existing stocks of lamps, products that were supplied to the market before 1 July 2015 will be exempted from the requirements for one year.

Registered suppliers supplying registrable goods must affix the Energy Label on the units that they supply in Singapore. The Energy Label shall be affixed only after the National Environment Agency (NEA) has issued the Certificate of Registration (COR) for the model. Retailers are only allowed to display models that have the label affixed on them.
