The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy have lifted the moratorium on new applications for Energy Star qualification.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy have lifted the moratorium on new applications for Energy Star qualification. Changes to the program are:

  • Manufacturers wishing to qualify new products as Energy Star can now submit test reports from their own lab for review and approval by EPA prior to labeling.
  • All new qualification applications will be reviewed and approved individually by EPA.

    By the end of the year, all products qualifying for Energy Star labeling, would be subject to qualification testing in an EPA approved, accredited laboratory, which includes the AHRI Certification Program.
