Energy Conservation Program: Test Procedures for Clothes Dryers
On July 23, 2019, the U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'') published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (``NOPR'') regarding proposals to amend the test procedures for clothes dryers and to request comment on the proposals and other aspects of clothes dryer testing. This notice also announced a webinar to be held on August 14, 2019, and stated that DOE would hold a public meeting on the proposal if one was requested by August 6, 2019. On July 29, 2019, DOE received a comment requesting a public meeting. On August 12, 2019, DOE published a Federal Register notice announcing a public meeting and webinar that will be held on August 28, 2019 and cancelled the previously announced webinar scheduled for August 14, 2019. On August 2, 2019 and August 5, 2019, DOE received subsequent comments requesting to move the webinar and public meeting into September 2019; therefore, DOE is changing the public meeting from August 28, 2019 to September 17, 2019 and extending the public comment period for submitting comments and data on the NOPR by 14 days to October 7, 2019.
