As part of the country’s efforts to develop a voluntary low-carbon product certification system, China’s National Development and Reform Council shall soon release technical requirements for certifying low-carbon products and rules for measuring emissions reductions in such products. The certification standards will cover products such as air conditioners, some types of motors, flat-screen television sets, refrigerators, flat glass products and cement products. Products certified via the new system will be valid for three years and may eventually be eligible for yet finalized tax incentives or other government support.
