DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AE36 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Test Procedures for Cooking Products 

On April 25, 2018, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a notification of petition from the association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) to withdraw, and immediately stay the effectiveness of the conventional cooking top test procedure. Based on the review of public comments and data received in response to this petition, DOE proposes to eliminate the test procedure for conventional cooking tops established under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), as amended, because it may not accurately represent consumer use for gas cooking tops, may not be repeatable or reproducible for both gas and electric cooking tops, and is overly burdensome to conduct. This test procedure was previously published as RIN 1904-AC71.
