DOE Publishes a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Public Meeting and Request for Information Pertaining to Test Procedures for Automatic Commercial Ice Makers

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has published a Federal Register notice proposing to amend the test procedure for automatic commercial ice makers (“ACIMs”; “ice makers”) to update incorporated references to the latest version of the industry standards; establish relative humidity and water hardness test conditions; provide additional detail regarding certain test conditions, settings, setup requirements, and calculations; include a voluntary measurement of potable water use; clarify certification and reporting requirements; and add enforcement provisions. This notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) also proposes to provide additional detail to the DOE test procedure to improve the representativeness and repeatability of the current ACIM test procedure. DOE is seeking comment from interested parties on the proposal.
