In addition to the voluntary ENERGY STAR® program, the U.S. DoE is also authorized to enforce compliance with federal energy and water conservation standards applicable to certain consumer products and commercial and industrial equipment.
Lighting products and equipment covered by DoE regulations include: general service lighting, reflector and decorative lamps, fluorescent lamps (including compact fluorescent lamps), ballasts light kits, and torchieres.
The Department’s certification, compliance and enforcement regulations are addressed in the Code of Federal Regulations, 10 CFR Part 429. These regulations cover required test procedures, record maintenance requirements, and the submission of annual certification reports. The DoE also maintains an online Compliance Certification Management System (CCMS) that enables manufacturers, importers, and third-party testing laboratories to create, submit, and track certification reports.
