Global Trade Alert Message:
Importers must now use product-specific templates to certify compliance to the U.S. Department of Energy before distributing a basic model to commerce in the United States and annually thereafter. These templates must then be submitted electronically to the Department through the Compliance Certification Management System.
Some of the products that require certification include refrigerators, air conditioners, heat pumps, water heaters, microwaves, televisions, lamps, and more appliances. The instructions for completing product-specific templates can be found here.
The full article can be found on the U.S. Department of Energy website here: www.regulations.doe.gov/ccms/templates
