In a clear wake up call to other energy efficiency regulators, the United States Department of Energy have from April 14, changed their requirements for MEPS registration of products under the Energy Star program.  “The EPA has strengthened its approval systems and is no longer relying on an automated approval process.   Companies are now required to submit complete lab reports and results for review and approval by EPA prior to labeling.  All new qualification applications will be reviewed and approved individually by EPA. ”

The certification process will be further strenghtened at the end of the year when only test results from approved, accredited labs will be accepted as evidence of compliance.
