  1. Click either;
    1. The “My Portal” > “EnergyStar Certification Center” > “My EnergyStar Applications” menu item, or
    2. Click either of the “EnergyStar Certification Center” buttons and then click the “My applications” button on the next page.
  2. Your applications dashboard will be empty the first time you log in.

You have the ability to save work-in-progress applications to your dashboard. These will be applications that have not been submitted to Bureau Veritas for review and are open to full editing by you. This may be useful when you have some, but not all, of the information needed to submit a completed application and you wish to enter it but not submit it.

These applications also have the ability to preview a draft certificate, which will have as much information on it as you’ve filled in on the form. You can also delete any application from this area at your wish, and it won’t affect any other applications whether unsubmitted or in review.

These are applications that have been submitted to Bureau Veritas and are under review by the certification team. Since they have been submitted, they are locked from editing unless a certification staff member has flagged an issue for you to edit. This is covered later in this manual.

The representation of a submitted application allows you to see at what step in the process the certification team is with your application. The various steps are covered later in this manual.


When planning on being away from the application input screen, be sure to first click the  button to save your work.

If no actions are performed on a screen for over 30 minutes, the session will either be automatically terminated and any work in progress will be terminated or an error message may appear. Clicking the “Save” button will save your workload without the risk of error.

  2. The “Start New EnergyStar Application” page appears.
  3. The “Energy Star Manufacturing Partner” field is a lookup field, which means that you can start typing in either the name of the partner or their partner organization ID, and the top 100 items matching will be listed. Keep typing until you find the partner you want.
  4. Select from the “Available Energy Star Schemas” in the dropdown list
  5. Click the "NEXT" button
Your current working models will not save until you click "SAVE CURRENT MODEL"

Once you finish entering the first model, you can add additional models by clicking the “Save & Add Another Model” button at the bottom of the page

After clicking the “Save & Add Another Model” button, the screen will scroll back to the top with two confirmation messages that your data has been successfully saved. All data from the previous model is left in the fields so that you only have to update the fields that change for the new model.

If you accidentally clicked the “Save & Add Another Model” button, don’t worry, the new model’s data has not been saved yet. To undo, simply click on a previously saved model using the model menu below.

If your application has multiple models, you can view them via the model menu at top right of the screen:


Then you can click on them to switch between different models:

You can remove models by clicking the “X” button next to the brand name in the menu above. Please note that the first model (the “representative model”) cannot be removed, only changed.

  3. You can either upload files individually with the “Upload” button on each row, or you can upload all your files at once with the “Upload All” button at the bottom.
  4. Once all your files are uploaded, they will show as files attached. If you uploaded a file that you later don’t want attached to the application, simply click the “Remove” button for the file you want removed:
