DOE issued a Notice of Noncompliance Determination to Westinghouse Lighting Corporation finding that various models of incandescent reflector lamps do not comport with the energy conservation standards. DOE determined the products were noncompliant based on the company's own testing. Westinghouse Lighting must immediately notify each person (or company) to whom Westinghouse Lighting distributed the noncompliant products that the products do not meet Federal standards. In addition, Westinghouse Lighting must provide to DOE documents and records showing the number of units Westinghouse Lighting distributed and to whom. The manufacturer and/or private labeler of the product may be subject to civil penalties.
