ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: On August 9, 2019, as a result of a petition from the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) and data received in response to that petition, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) proposing to withdraw the test procedure for conventional cooking tops established under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA).

DOE has determined that the conventional cooking tops test procedure is not representative of energy use or efficiency during an average use cycle and is overly burdensome to conduct. DATES: The effective date of this rule is September 17, 2020. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this rule was approved by the Director of the Federal Register on April 8, 2011 and December 17, 2012.
