Final Rule Technical Amendment

October 23rd 2013

On October 23, 2013 the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a final rule technical amendment regarding energy conservations standards for certain consumer products and commercial/industrial equipment. The recently enacted American Energy Manufacturing Technical Corrections Act amended the Energy Policy and Conservation Act as to certain consumer products and commercial and industrial equipment. The amendments include new and revised energy conservation standards and definitions, as well as technical corrections, which DOE is incorporating into its regulations in this technical amendment. DOE is also making additional limited changes to the language of its regulations, as necessitated by the statutory amendments.
