Final input from the working group for Eco-labelling Criteria – Chiller.
Upon MASHRAE’s recommendation, SIRIM Bhd has adopted ASHRAE 15 Safety Code, ASME Pressure Vessel Code and AHRI Standard 550/590 into the normative references for all to comply with.
For Chiller Eco-labeling criteria,working group unanimously agreed to base on Zero ODP and GWP of < 2500 as base criteria. Products that used HCFC refrigerant are not qualify. As this is Malaysian based, SIRIM Bhd strongly required Environmental Quality- Industrial Effluents Regulation 2009, Refrigerant Management Regulation 2004, Scheduled Wastes Regulation 2005, OSHA Regulation 2000 and DOSH compliance. Minimum Energy Efficiency shall be based on MS 1525 and MS 2449 standards.
