Energy Conservation Program: Compliance Date Regarding the Test Procedures for Walk In Coolers and Freezers and the Certification for Metal Halide Lamp Ballasts and Fixtures

Docket ID: EERE-2011-BT-CE-0050
Agency: Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office (EERE)
Parent Agency: Department of Energy (DOE)
DOE is publishing this correction to extend the compliance date by which manufacturers must begin to use portions of a recently promulgated test procedure (i.e., the April 15, 2011 final rule) when certifying walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers. This document also changes regulatory text to reflect DOE's intent that only manufacturers of components of walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers are required to submit certification reports. Additionally, the document contains clarifications as to the types of test data needed to support the certification of compliance per DOE's existing test procedures for walk-in coolers and walk-in freezers and the recently promulgated test procedure for this equipment. Finally, this document extends the compliance date for certification of metal halide lamp ballasts and fixtures.
