When selecting the representative sample, the requester shall also consider the following for each family to be sent for laboratory testing:

  • Send for laboratory testing preferably an equipment having the compressor with the highest capacity and/or the greatest number of components in its electrical circuit.
  • With the exception of family 8, preferably assess a product with glass doors, as this option considers the most unfavorable situation for assessing energy consumption.
  • Testing shall be conducted on the same product and in the following order: Blast Chilling (if applicable), Energy Efficiency and Product Safety. For laboratory testing, the sample to be assessed per each family to be certified will be composed of the same product with the characteristics described above.

* Capacities higher than those indicated in the range may be integrated.
