DOE/EE RIN: 1904-AF50 Publication ID: Spring 2023 
Title: ●Test Procedure for Dishwashers 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is proposing to add clarifying instructions regarding the dishwasher detergent reporting requirements and an enforcement provision for dishwashers to specify the detergent and dosing method that DOE would use for any enforcement testing of dishwasher models certified in accordance with the currently applicable dishwasher test procedure prior to July 17, 2023. DOE is also proposing to add within the recently amended test procedure clarifying instructions regarding the allowable dosing options for each type of detergent. This rulemaking is being conducted to address a single specific issue and make minor corrections to the current test procedures that are required for certification of compliance with applicable energy conservation standards, and does not satisfy the 7-year lookback requirement prescribed by EPCA.
