Target values for the power consumption of electrical equipment have been laid down in Switzerland in collaboration with the industry as a new type of energy policy instrument. As a general rule, 95% of the equipment sold is required to comply with these target values by the set deadlines, otherwise the government is authorised to issue admission restrictions. An evaluation of these measures has indicated that manufacturers and importers displayed a motivated and constructive approach during these negotiations and have set out to meet the consumption values. In combination with the effects of the ''Energy 2000 Label'', the stipulation of consumption target values can already be described as a successful move, especially in the fields of office and electronic entertainment equipment.
