The Water Efficiency Labelling Scheme (WELS) helps consumers choose their products such as taps, flushing cisterns, urinals, washing machines, dishwashers etc. wisely. The mandatory scheme helps expand the range of higher efficiency products in the market and makes them more affordable.
The saving of 2-tick, 3-tick and 4-tick washing machine is compared to a less efficient 1-tick washing machine.
Note: With effect from 1 Apr 2017, products advertised/offered-for-sale or displayed have to bear the new water efficiency labels. These labels have to be shown with prominence to help consumers make informed choices.
