Importing regulated energy-using products
Canada’s Energy Efficiency Act and Energy Efficiency Regulations prohibit the importation of certain energy-using products (for the purpose of sale or lease) unless specific requirements are met by importers/dealers.
Visit www.nrcan.gc.ca/energy/regulations-codes-standards/6861 for the most up-to-date information.
NRCan import reporting requirements* (five data elements):
- Name of the product (eg. dishwasher)
- Model number of the product (for motors, the model number or the unique motor identifier)
- Brand name (if any)
- Address of the dealer
- Purpose of the importation
*For battery chargers, external power supplies, fluorescent lamp ballasts, electric motors and small electric motors incorporated into another product at time of import, the import reporting requirements listed above do not apply. All of the other regulatory requirements still apply (the product must meet the energy efficiency standard, an energy efficiency report must be filed prior to import, the product must bear an energy efficiency verification mark and the product must bear the prescribed label, if any).
