It was the final phase of a three-phase training strategy developed and agreed to by the Pacific Appliance Labelling and Standards (P.A.L.S.) participating countries in 2015.
“The P.A.L.S. programme assists several Pacific Island countries to adopt laws to standardise selected appliance performance standards by using the same performance standards and energy labelling as used in Australia and New Zealand,” said Assistant Chief Executive and Energy Sector Coordinator, Sione Foliaki.
Mr. Foliaki added this workshop is timely given that Samoa adopted its Energy Efficiency Act in December 2017 and the corresponding Energy Efficiency Regulation in March earlier this year.
He added through the workshop, they expect participants to understand how to go through the processes and procedures, especially the registering any energy using products before importing them to avoid penalties.
