Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Commercial Water Heating EquipmentProposed Rule2016-1217805/31/2016DEPARTMENT OF ENERGYEnergy DepartmentThe Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), as amended, prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including commercial water heaters, hot water … The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), as amended, prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including commercial water heaters, hot water supply boilers, and unfired hot water storage tanks (hereinafter referred to as ``commercial water heating (CWH) equipment''). EPCA also requires that every 6 years, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) must determine whether more-stringent, amended standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would save a significant amount of energy. In this action, DOE has tentatively concluded that there is clear and convincing evidence to support more-stringent standards for several classes of the equipment that are the subject of this rulemaking. DOE did not consider more-stringent standards in this action for commercial oil-fired storage water heaters, whose standards were recently amended. Therefore, DOE proposes amended energy conservation standards for certain commercial water heating equipment, and also announces a public meeting to receive comment on these proposed standards and associated analyses and results.energy-conservation-program-energy-conservation-standards-for-commercial-water-heating-equipmentFR-Doc-2016-12178

This final rule requires that regulated entities complete the first of the two scale tests between January 1 and June 30 of the calendar year. The remaining scale test must be completed between July 1 and December 31 of the calendar year. In addition, a minimum period of 120 days will now be required between these two tests. GIPSA is also including in this final rule an exception for the testing of scales with limited seasonal use. More frequent testing, however, will still be required in cases where a scale does not maintain accuracy between tests. Finally, we are amending that same section of the regulations to add ``swine contractors'' to the list of regulated entities to which the section applies. GIPSA believes that this final rule will facilitate GIPSA's ability to regulate the business operations of stockyard owners, swine contractors, market agencies, dealers, packers, and live poultry dealers through the effective enforcement of the P&S Act.required-scale-testsFR-Doc-2011-1093

The NVLAP procedures are revised to ensure continued consistency with international standards and guidelines currently set forth in the International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 17025:1999, General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, and ISO/IEC Guide 58:1993, Calibration and testing laboratory accreditation systems--General requirements for operation and recognition, thereby facilitating and promoting acceptance of test and calibration results between countries to avoid barriers to trade. Provisions in this regard will facilitate cooperation between laboratories and other bodies, assist in the exchange of information and experience and in the harmonization of standards and procedures, and establish the basis for national and international mutual recognition arrangements. In addition, NIST is reorganizing and simplifying part 285 for ease of use and understanding. While the existing regulations accurately set forth the NVLAP procedures, the regulations themselves are complex and difficult to understand. In an effort to simplify the format and make the regulations more user friendly, NIST is rewriting in plain English and consolidating sections previously contained in subparts A through C of part 285.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2001/05/30/01-13448/national-voluntary-laboratory-accreditation-program-operating-proceduresFR-Doc-01-13448
