AS NZS 2442.2:2021(+A2-2021) Performance of household electrical appliances一Rotary clothes dryers Part 2: Energy efficiency labelling requirements.
This Standard specifies the energy efficiency labelling requirements for electric household rotary clothes dryers that are within the scope of the relevant legislation.
NOTE Examples of appliances covered by this Standard include vented dryers, condenser dryers and dryers that use a heat pump as a heat source and the drying function of combination washer/dryer units.
In particular, this Standard specifies the following:
(a) Program for energy efficiency labelling and water efficiency labelling (where applicable).
(b) Comparative energy consumption (CEC).
(c) Star rating for energy efficiency labelling.
(d) Energy rating label requirements.
(e) Performance criteria.
(f) Content, format and affixing requirements for rotary clothes dryer energy rating labels.
(g) Test report content, example for the application for registration for energy efficiency labelling and water efficiency labelling.
(h) Details concerning appliance registration with the relevant regulator.
