Process of BEE certification: How to get BEE certification

Unlike traditional certifications, the BEE registration process or BEE certification process or the process of getting energy star rating has two levels:

  1. Brand Level Certification or BEE brand registration: It is the BEE certification level of a brand. It’s a vast encompassing registration.
  2. Model Level Registration or BEE model Registration: At the model level, all the products that are under the BEE registered brand gain BEE certification separately.

Once you have cleared the certification process at both BEE status levels, only you then you get complete registration.

As for the process, BEE certification India has the three traditional steps:

  1. Testing of the appliance to check for energy consumption.
  2. Filing the application of BEE certification. Currently, there is a process to register BEE certificate online, which makes the application filing process also online.
  3. Submitting the application or the BEE certificate form via filling the BEE certificate online application to the Bureau of Energy Efficiency. Remember that during this step, you’ll be given a Bureau of Energy Efficiency Login. Once you receive the login, proceed to file the application pay the bee certificate cost. The entry level BEE certificate price, the entry fee is the same, while the model BEE certification fee is charged on per model basis.
  4. Submitting the Offline documents as well;’ The BEE certificate form is not only to be filed during the BEE certificate online application process, a hard copy of it – a duly filled BEE registration form PDF – has to be submitted to the BEE rating agency. Along with the application, the documents are needed to be submitted as well. As for where to send it to, the bee office address varies depending upon your state. The consultants will help you get there as you file the application.
  5. Getting the application processed and getting the certification on time. During processing, the department will conduct a thorough BEE verification process to check the efficacy of your documents.

BEE star rating means that you’re not going to get the 3 star BEE rating or the 5 star BEE rating right away. To give you the star rating, BEE itself conducts a series of tests to see if your products fall on the specific standards set by it.

Furthermore, throughout the process of BEE certification, India, you’ll have to monitor the application’s status. If your application has any issues, you’ll be promptly informed of it.

Point(s) to be noted:

  1. BEE registration doesn’t mean getting the BEE 5 star rating. It merely means getting the rating as per the official BEE star rating calculator.
  2. The process of how the equipment is tested is different for different types of equipment. For instance, the process for getting energy rating in refrigerator, the BEE star rating for refrigerators 2020 would be different from BEE rating for AC. For electrical appliances like BEE 5 star ceiling fans, the way of rating them different.
  3. Certain low electronic appliances also get star ratings, including ceiling fans. However, the parameters to assess the star rating for a bee 5 star rated ceiling fans would be different from the energy star rating for refrigerators or ACs.
  4. To get a 5 star energy rating, your equipment should be specifically designed with energy saving in mind.

Renewal is as important as getting the registration, thus remember to go through the BEE certificate renewal process once your BEE registration expires. The expiry dates comes into picture just when the product stops abiding by the electricity star rating that it did once. In simple terms,  once the electrical appliance loses its efficiency, it loses the BEE certificate.
