The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has submitted an information collection request to OMB for extension under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The information collection requests a three-year extension on the reports and data collected and recorded in support of DOE's Appliance Standards Program. Specifically, DOE is submitting for approval paperwork requirements associated with the three following aspects of the appliance standards program: (1) Gathering data and submitting the certification and compliance reports for each basic model distributed in commerce in the US; (2) maintaining records underlying the certified ratings for each basic model including test data and the associated calculations; and (3) applications for a test procedure waiver for which manufacturers may elect to submit if they manufacturer a basic model that cannot be tested pursuant to the DOE test procedure. This collection includes all covered products and equipment subject to DOE's regulatory requirements described in 10 CFR Parts 429, 430, and 431. More specifically, DOE's certification and compliance requirements are described in 10 CFR Part 429. DOE's records retention requirements are described in 10 CFR 429.71. DOE's application for a test procedure waiver process is described in 10 CFR 430.27 and 431.401.
Energy Conservation Program: Proposed Determination of Computer and Battery Backup Systems as a Covered Consumer Product
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE or the ``Department'') has determined tentatively that computer and battery backup systems (hereafter referred to as ``computer systems'') qualify as a covered product under Part A of Title III of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), as amended. This notice supersedes DOE's previous proposed determination of coverage relating to computers, and expands the scope of coverage to include computer systems. DOE has determined that computer systems meet the criteria for covered products because classifying products of such type as covered products is necessary or appropriate to carry out the purposes of EPCA, and the average U.S. household energy use for computer systems is likely to exceed 100 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year.

Energy Conservation Program for Certain Commercial and Industrial Equipment: Test Procedure for Commercial Water Heating Equipment
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is initiating a rulemaking and data collection process to consider amendments to the DOE test procedures for commercial water heaters, unfired hot water storage tanks, and hot water supply boilers (henceforth, ``commercial water heating equipment''). To inform interested parties and to facilitate this process, DOE has identified several issues associated with the current Federal test procedures on which DOE is particularly interested in receiving comment. In overview, the issues outlined in this document mainly concern updating the industry test standards that are currently incorporated by reference to the most recent versions, potential alternative methods for determining the efficiency of unfired storage tanks, potential changes to the method for setting the thermostat, potential clarifications in the thermal efficiency test method, and the potential inclusion of a test method for commercial heat pump water heaters (HPWH). DOE anticipates that these issues (as well as any others which are identified during the course of this rulemaking) may lead to proposed test procedure amendments in a subsequent notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR). DOE welcomes written comments and data from the public on all aspects of this test procedure, including topics not raised in this RFI.
