California Energy Commission (CEC) & 
Canada's Energy Efficiency Regulations (NRCAN)

Canada's Energy Efficiency Regulations (the Regulations)
have been amended to establish minimum energy performance standards for certain products that use
standby power.
The Appliance Efficiency Program requires that the manufacturers of certain appliances meet state and federal standards for energy and water efficiency. Manufacturers must also certify the performance of their appliances to the Energy Commission to demonstrate compliance with the standards and make this information available to the public.

ICT Codes of Conduct

Energy Consumption of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) is rapidly increasing including the stand-by power consumed by end-use devices when they are switched off or not performing their main function. Recently, the European Climate Change Program indicated to take actions shortly for reducing stand by losses.

Technology exists to avoid or reduce stand-by power consumption and improve energy efficiency in all operational modes. As for other energy efficiency initiatives for end-use equipment, actions taken at EU level avoid creating trade barriers as the levels and requirements for equipment will be the same throughout the EU market. Moreover, the more equipment is covered, the larger are the energy and environmental benefited.
