Law No. 2009-7

Last updated: 22 July 2020

This law applies to air conditioners with a power consumption below 12 kW.


Since September 2004, Tunisian law requires the display of an EU-style energy label (with eight classes, the top one representing the recently added EU A+ and A++ classes) in a bilingual version (French and Arabic, and the numbers 1-8 indicating classes instead of letters).


From July 2006 onwards, the lowest two energy classes (7 and 8) have been banned from the Tunisian market, followed in July 2007 with the banning of classes 5 and 6, from April 2009 class 4 has been likewise banned from the Tunisian market.


The minimum performance standards thus are the following
