DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AE49 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Test Procedure for Battery Chargers 

The Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), as amended, requires the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to consider every 7 years whether to amend test procedures for battery chargers. In making this determination, DOE must consider whether to amend its test procedures because doing so would more accurately produce test results which measure energy efficiency, or determine not to amend the test procedures. Once completed, this rulemaking will fulfill DOE’s statutory obligation to either propose amended test procedures for this equipment or determine that the test procedures do not need to be amended.
