DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AF03 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Test Procedure for Portable Air Conditioners 

The Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), as amended, requires the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to amend test procedures with respect to portable air conditioners at least once every 7 years, if it determines that amended test procedures would more accurately produce test results which measure energy efficiency, or make a determination not to amend test procedures.  Once completed, this rulemaking will fulfill DOE's statutory obligation to either propose amended test procedures for this product, or to determine that the existing test procedures do not need to be amended.
