DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AF18 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Test Procedure for Cooking Tops 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is required to review its test procedures for cooking products, including conventional cooking tops, once every 7 years under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), as amended.  In this rulemaking, DOE is proposing to establish a test procedure for conventional cooking tops, a category of cooking products, that would replace the procedure that DOE withdrew on August 18, 2020. Once completed, this rulemaking will fulfill DOE's statutory obligation to either propose new test procedures for this product or determine that new test procedures are not required.  This review will also satisfy the review requirement under Executive Order 13990, "Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis," 86 FR 7037 (January 25, 2021).
