Amazon's US station announced that the California Energy Commission (CEC) requires regulated appliances to meet minimum electrical energy efficiency standards and provide accurate registration information in the Modern Appliance Energy Efficiency Database System (MAEDbS), including brand name, manufacturer name, and model .
New restrictions on selling appliances in California in 2023
On February 6, 2023, Amazon will begin restricting sales to California of the following categories of products not registered with MAEDbS:
●Swimming pool products and portable spa products
●Portable air conditioner
●Computer and monitor
Any products that sellers sell in these categories will still be available for sale on Amazon; however, they will not be available for sale in California until the seller properly registers them with the CEC's MAEDbS. Once Amazon confirms that your product is registered, your listing will automatically resume selling in California.
For more information on the types of products that require MAEDbS registration, visit the California Energy Commission (CEC).
