5.4 Content of energy ratIng label elements
5.4.1 Base energy rating label elements
A base energy rating label shall include the following elements (see Figure 5.1):
(a) Element a — The element a band shall terminate according to the appliance star rating (see Table 2,1), either bisecting the relevant star for a rating involving a half star or bisecting the gap between the relevant star and the next highest on the scale, for a rating of only full stars.
(b) Element b — The brand, model and rated load capacity shall be inserted here as indicated by element b In Figure 5.1. The wording shall be complete arid concise. The lines shall not exceed a length of 65 mm. They shall have normal spacing of letter, line and word. They shall be centred horizontally in the area allowed. Where required, the brand and model text may be placed on two lines centred within the available space.
(c) Element c — The panel of element c shall contain the comparative energy consumption (CEC). The numeric figure that applies to the particular appliance shall be in the font and size indicated, and centred in the red panel. The spacing between the figures of a three-figure number is the same as for a four-figure number.
