Title: Test Procedure for Ceiling Fans 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is considering amendments to its test procedures for ceiling fans established under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), as amended, to establish alternate stability criteria for average air velocity measurements for some ceiling fans, to reduce test burden, to interpret the term "suspended from a ceiling," and to specify which ceiling fans do not need to be tested pursuant to the DOE test methods. DOE also proposes to specify certain metrics in support of the FTC’s Energy Guide label to clarify testing for very-small-diameter (VSD) ceiling fans, and amend certification requirements for ceiling fans.
