Argentina: new regulation on energy efficiency for refrigerators and freezers

The Government of Argentina recently published the No. 98/2011 regulation specifying stricter energy efficiency standards for all freezers, refrigerators and other refrigeration appliances imported to or sold in Argentina.
Under this regulation, all freezers or refrigerators covered must meet the level C energy efficiency requirements or higher; the lowest efficiency standard was D in the past.
This new regulation entered into force on September 1, 2011.
