CLASP Compliance Toolkit
Explore guidance, tools and analyses to support robust compliance efforts.
The clean energy, and appliance efficiency and quality sectors are working tirelessly towards a more sustainable world. These efforts are significant, but it is critical that professionals and policymakers account for compliance in their strategies – a critical activity that helps to protect the anticipated benefits of energy efficiency policies and sustainable technologies for consumers, the market, and the planet.
The CLASP Compliance Toolkit offers up-to-date, accessible and interactive resources to help countries design effective policy implementation and enforcement strategies and mechanisms to improve compliance and lock in the benefits of adopting clean energy technologies and energy efficiency and quality standards.
Introduction to Compliance
CLASP has developed a series of general resources to educate policymakers, practitioners, researchers and the public on the basics of policy compliance.
Learn about each step of a robust compliance strategies for on- and off-grid markets.
Non-Compliance Risk Assessment Tool
The Non-Compliance Risk Assessment Tool (NC-RAT) allows users to evaluate energy efficiency policy enforcement efforts and associated market non-compliance risk.
NC-RAT is an easy-to-use tool that is based on a qualitative assessment of national policy implementation and enforcement mechanisms.
The Non-Compliance Risk Assessment Tool (NC-RAT) is an easy-to-use tool that is based on a qualitative assessment of national compliance programs and organized under five Indicators: Regulation, Resources, Certification & Registration, Market Surveillance & Enforcement, and Compliance Communication. Each Indicator includes relevant questions for the user to respond to, based on which, the Tool calculates scores for 1) each Indicator and 2) a corresponding overall score for market non-compliance risk. The tool also provides initial recommendations for how policymakers can strengthen compliance programs, based on individual user responses
To learn more about how to use the NC-RAT, watch this how-to video for a step-by-step tutorial.

Why Compliance Counts
Emphasizing the importance of clean energy solutions and appliance efficiency and quality policies are at the core of CLASP’s work. One step that is often overlooked in the energy efficiency sector is compliance, a critical activity that helps governments protect the anticipated benefits of efficiency policies for consumers, the market, and the planet.
Integrating Appliance Efficiency into Nationally Determined Contributions
CLASP’s new report investigates the lack of appliance efficiency policy included in countries’ NDCs and provides recommendations to governments on how they can best leverage ambitious appliance efficiency policies in revised climate commitments.
New Efficiency Policies in India Could Avoid 15 Mt of CO₂ by 2030
India’s Bureau of Energy Efficiency recently adopted voluntary energy efficiency policies for air compressors and ultra-high-definition televisions. This initiative aims to reduce the energy consumption and climate impacts attributed to such products, and increase savings for consumers via electricity bills.
CLASP Research Supports Ghana’s Efforts to End Appliance Dumping in Africa
On behalf of the African Parties to the Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the Ozone Layer, Ghana submitted a draft decision proposing next steps in stopping the environmentally harmful dumping of new and used cooling appliances that are also inefficient and/or use obsolete refrigerants. CLASP and IGSD’s investigations supported the quantitative and policy foundation for this proposal.
