Compliance Certification Enforcement

DOE enforces the energy and water conservation regulations established by the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Appliance Standards Program to ensure that residential, commercial and industrial equipment deliver the energy and cost savings required by law.  To ensure that all covered products comply with the energy and water conservation standards, the enforcement office reviews manufacturers’ compliance with certification requirements.  Products covered under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975, as amended, are required annually to ‘‘certify by means of a certification report that each basic model(s) meets the applicable energy conservation standard.”  This program ensures that manufacturers provide the government with information demonstrating compliance with United States law.
