What’s DoE Up To?

Rumblings from America’s EE Enforcement Regs
•   DoE released RFI in May “Revisions to Energy Efficiency
    Enforcement Regulations” re: 10 CFR Parts 430 and 431.
•   Revision of enforcement regs for certain consumer products, and
    commercial and industrial equipment covered under the Energy
    Policy and Conservation Act of 1975.
•   Considering changes to Enforcement Testing & Adjudication,
    Certification, Verification Testing, Application of Regulations to
    Distinctive Products

What’s EPA Up To?

Shift to America’s Bellwether EE Program
•   Completely overhauling ENERGY STAR program
    amid critical scrutiny
•   Change from Self-Declaration to Certification-and-
    Verification model
•   Will require testing in EPA-recognized labs
•   Will require 3rd party certification programs for ALL
    product types
•   Will require 3rd party verification of compliance,

How Bad Is It?

•   EPA “Qualified” 15 of 20 Fake Products
    Submitted by GAO from 4 Dummy Companies
•   Products ranged from a “gas-powered alarm
    clock” (the size of a portable gas generator) to
    a space heater posing as an air cleaner.
•   The “air cleaner” claimed 20% higher EE than
    the top “Qualified” ENERGY STAR® air
•   Yes, that’s a feather duster and fly paper!

ENERGY STAR® Breaking News

June 2010; Final EPA ENERGY STAR Guides for Accreditation
•   Test labs must be EPA recognized
     •   EPA-recognized will include 17025 accredited labs (meeting “Conditions and
         Criteria for Recognition of Laboratories for the ENERGY STAR program”) or labs
         participating in CB’s DAPs
     •   1st party EPA-recognized, ISO 17025 accredited labs will be “afforded
         consideration” when participating in a CB’s Data Acceptance Program (WMTL,
          •   Potential benefits include less rigorous CB initial audit, less audit frequency
     •   3rd party labs must be EPA-recognized, ISO 17025 accredited, full stop.

ENERGY STAR® Breaking News

July 2010; FINAL Draft EPA ENERGY STAR Guides for Certification
•   All products must be part of a 3rd party certification program 30 December 2010
•   Certification Bodies must be Guide 65 accredited, EPA approved for ENERGY
    STAR products in 3rd party certification program
•   Satellite Data Acceptance Program (manufacturer testing) accepted for ENERGY
    STAR Certifications managed by an accredited, EPA approved CB
•   As part of Satellite (DAP), manufacturer labs must demonstrate compliance, via CB
    evaluation, to ISO 17025 and applicable test methods
     •   Thus far, formal ISO 17025 accreditation of in house labs is not required for
         Satellite (DAP) situations

 ENERGY STAR® Breaking News

 July 2010; FINAL Draft EPA ENERGY STAR Guides for Certification
 •   ENERGY STAR Qualification
       •   Assessment (CB): Product meets or exceeds performance to product-specific req’s
       •   Labeling (EPA): Monitors compliance to ENERGY STAR program req’s
       •   Reporting (CB): Timely certification flow to EPA for Qualified Product Lists*

*EPA appreciates … concerns regarding product development cycles, and understands that a
CB’s ability to review product data in a timely manner can affect … time to market. (Recognition)
of a CB … in the ENERGY STAR program … (EPA) will evaluate the CB’s product data review
procedure to ensure it meets the needs of ENERGY STAR partners.

 ENERGY STAR® Breaking News

 July 2010; FINAL Draft EPA ENERGY STAR Guides for Certification
 •   ENERGY STAR Verification
      •   Performance/Labeling (EPA): Ensure continued compliance to program req’s
      •   Selection Volume (CB): Test min 10% of previously qualified base models per year*
            •   Selection benchmarks to be enumerated in product-specific requirements

*EPA will define “base model” within individual program requirements – base model in certain
product categories could represent product family of models with differing ENERGY STAR
performance and in other categories base model may differ from other models only cosmetically.

ENERGY STAR® Breaking News

July 2010; FINAL Draft EPA ENERGY STAR Guides for Certification
•   ENERGY STAR Verification
     •   Selection Approach by CB:
           •   50% from ENERGY STAR Qualified Products List (per CB)*
           •   50% from verification testing failures, referrals (questioning accuracy of
               ratings), new models/new market entrants, high sales volume models
     •   Procurement of Test Samples**:
           •   Off the shelf
           •   Warehouse
           •   Off the line
* It’s still undecided by EPA if ‘grandfathered’ ENERGY STAR products will be subject to
selection criteria for ongoing Verification testing; watch Partner Agreement deadline
** CB is responsible for sample selection; manufacturer may not choose the testing sample
