ASEAN SHINE - AIR CONDITIONERS TASK FORCE 2ND STEERING COMMITTEE MEETING

According to the assessment report and discussion, the trend will be moving toward CSPF. For the time being, EER and SEER standards will be separated and then studied when would be the appropriate time to merge this two standards into one.

For the MEPS approaches, it should come up with 2 approaches.

1) National level, each country should come up with the national roadmap of MEPS (mandatory) and the timeline.

2) Regional level, we should come up with the ASEAN regional roadmap of MEPS and timeline where MEPS will become one single value and each country should synchronize their national roadmap with the regional roadmap.

For testing infrastructures, there is no issue since we already harmonized the testing method according to the ISO standard and will cooperate with IS-INOTEX to come out with the round robin test and other capacity building program.

For monitoring and verification, one issue to consider is the tolerance of MEPS and how the countries will share the result.
