Abstract: The goal of the work, developed in the Thesis by Silva Jr. (2005), is discuss the application of the methodologies of Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) as a tool to propose energy efficiency standards, complementally to the mandatory labels (PROCEL) already existing in the one-door Brazilian refrigerators. Another objective is to study the role of these instruments as means to supply technical subsidies for the establishment of maximum level of electric energy consumption and environmental quality impact for electrical equipments in Brazil. The LCCA methodology allows to evaluate the impacts of the energy efficiency increasing in electrical equipments, resulting in important saving (energy, financial, CO2 emissions avoided) for the country and its citizens. This paper present after of the conclusions a discussion about the possibility of the creation of environmental labelling (e.g., Green Seal - USA, Eco-label - EU etc.) that is an additional program/methodology, which, it may be utilized as support for development of technologies and for the increase of energy and environmental efficiency of the electric equipments. These labels are strategically important for Brazil to amplify the environmental programs to their products because they can facilitate the insertion of these products in the international market, at the same time, that the country gets in the increase of the quality technical and environment-.
