DOE Publishes a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Request for Comment Pertaining to General Service Lamps 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has published a Federal Register notice proposing to codify in the Code of Federal Regulations the 45 lumens per watt (“lm/W”) backstop requirement for general service lamps (GSLs) that Congress prescribed in the Energy Policy and Conservation Act, as amended. DOE proposes this backstop requirement applies because DOE failed to complete a rulemaking regarding general service lamps in accordance with certain statutory criteria.  DOE welcomes comments on this proposal. 

  • DOE will accept comments, data, and information regarding this NOPR until January 27, 2022.
  • Interested persons may submit comments identified by docket number EERE–2021–BT–STD-0005, by email (GSL2021STD0005@ee.doe.gov), Federal eRulemaking portal (http://www.regulations.gov).
  • Find product information for General Service Lamps including current standards and test procedures, statutory authority, waivers, exceptions and contact information.
