DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AC23 Publication ID: Fall 2011 
Title: Certification, Compliance, and Enforcement for Consumer Products and Commercial and Industrial Equipment 
Abstract: DOE conducted a rulemaking to review, revise, and expand its existing certification, compliance, and enforcement regulations for certain consumer products and commercial and industrial equipment covered under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975, as amended. These regulations provide for sampling plans used in determining compliance with existing standards, manufacturer submission of compliance statements and certification reports to DOE, maintenance of compliance records by manufacturers, and the availability of enforcement actions for improper certification or noncompliance with an applicable standard. Ultimately, DOE believes the provisions developed in this rulemaking improve DOE's ability to systematically enforce applicable energy and water conservation standards for covered products and covered equipment and provide for more accurate, comprehensive information about the energy and water use characteristics of products sold in the United States.
