Establishing functional monitoring, verification, and enforcement (MVE) infrastructure is critical to safeguarding the credibility of product energy efficiency standards and labelling (S&L) programmes, as well as to ensuring that S&L programmes realise expected energy savings.
Monitoring activities identify potential cases of non-compliance, and verification procedures confirm whether or not compliance violations have occurred. However, it is enforcement authority that enables relevant agencies to respond to cases of non-compliance, using a range of appropriate and proportionate sanctions to remove non-compliant products from the market.
A well-thought-out enforcement strategy – built around practical enforcement procedures – is an essential component of any compliance framework. In the absence of such a strategy, compliant suppliers suffer a competitive disadvantage and may be penalised through a loss of economic returns, both of which can provide a disincentive to invest in innovation.
Participants in this webinar will receive practical, in-depth guidance on the role of enforcement in the MVE process, and will learn about enforcement best practices that they can integrate into national MVE strategies for lighting.
