Arlington, Virginia, United States, 22 May 2018: Earlier in May, the Department of Energy (DoE) issued its updated regulatory agenda, listing the regulatory actions it plans to take in the near- and long-term, AHRI informed its members in a Press communiqué. Changes in these updated Active and Long-Term lists, which involve rulemakings on products within AHRI’s scope are detailed in the General Rulemaking Information section (members-only) of AHRI’s Regulatory Resources website, the communiqué said.

According to AHRI, based on the Active List and indications from DoE, Requests for Information (RFIs) for test procedures for single package vertical air conditioners and heat pumps, automatic commercial ice makers, computer room air conditioners, variable refrigerant flow multi-split air conditioners and heat pumps, water-source commercial heat pumps, air-cooled dedicated outdoor air systems, commercial refrigeration equipment, walk-in coolers and freezers refrigeration systems, commercial water heaters unfired storage tanks, and water- and evaporatively-cooled commercial air conditioners and heat pumps will likely all come out this year.

The communiqué said action is also indicated for the procedures, interpretations and policies for consideration of new or revised energy conservation standards for consumer products (“process rule”), which DoE intends to finalise prior to other rules.
