Kiribati has drafted Minimum Energy Performance Standards and Labeling (MEPSL) under the Pacific Alliance Labelling and Standards Programme (PALS), but they have not yet been signed into law. Policies are drafted for a voluntary Comparative Label and voluntary Minimum Performance Standards for air conditioners, ballasts, incandescent lamps, self-ballasted CFLs, tubular lamps, freezers, and refrigerator-freezers.


The draft covers the following products:

-Single and three-phase ducted or non-ducted air conditioners of the vapour compression type up to 65kW cooling capacity; 
-Ferromagnetic and electronic ballasts for use with linear fluorescent lamps from 15W to 70W, rated for 50Hz and 230|240|250V supply, or a range that includes these values;
-Incandescent lamps, both tungsten filament and tunsten halogen, that are used for general lighting service; covers both non-reflector and reflector lamps of all voltages;
-Self-ballasted CFLs of any voltage or wattage and with any type of lamp cap, intended for general lighting purposes, whether supplied as an individual lamp or as part of a luminaire;
-Double-capped, FD and FDH tubular fluorescent lamps of 16W or more, with a nominal length of 550mm to 1500mm, that are within the scope of AS|NZS 4782.1;
-Freezers intended for household similar use which operate using the vapour compression cycle and use mains electricity, 230|240 Volts at 50Hz, as the primary power source; and
-Refrigerator-freezers intended for household similar use which operate using the vapour compression cycle and use mains electricity, 230|240 Volts at 50Hz, as the primary power source.
