The Inmetro Brazilian Labeling Program (PBE) is now evaluating water consumption, washing performance and the spinning of washing machines. This means that, from April 2020, it will not be enough to be efficient only in energy consumption to receive a Classification A , – it will also be necessary to have a maximum score in all four questions. The good news is that there is a race among manufacturers to lead the market before this new classification date. According to Clauber Leite, an expert in energy and sustainability from the Brazilian Institute of Consumer Defense (IDEC), the new method of classification is an advance because the vast majority of products today are already in classification A, which led to the revision of the analysis guidelines. He said that it is also necessary for the current consumption parameters to be reviewed.
