Energy Efficient Products

Is a packaged household refrigerating appliance at the point of sale a product that needs to bear the energy label?

Packaged household refrigerating appliances at the point of sale need to bear a label. There is no requirement to stamp label on the package, but it has to be clearly visible on the outside of the front or top of the appliance. If the products are stored in a warehouse, there is no need that these products bear a label. Usually there is one product that is displayed as a model at the point of sale; the other models of the same series are stored in a warehouse. If a dealer decides to have all products displayed at the point of sale, then there needs to be a label on each product.
