IAPMO R&T, PMI to Present DOE Rule Change Webinar
Ontario, Calif. (June 14, 2011) IAPMO R&T and Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) will host the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) as it discusses certification of plumbing products under DOE regulations, manufacturer compliance, and DOE's enforcement program. This meeting is an opportunity for manufacturers, importers, and product rating organizations to ask DOE questions about these requirements and learn about new requirements that will become effective next month. The meeting will be conducted via webinar so that attendees can participate remotely.
The webinar will be held on June 24, 1:303:30 p.m. EDT. Moderated by IAPMO Director of Special Programs Pete DeMarco, "Department of Energy's FINAL RULE for the Energy Conservation Program (10 CFR 429, 430, 431)" will explain the recently announced rulemaking undertaken by the DOE and the associated testing and reporting requirements that will become effective on July 5 for consumer plumbing products and pre-rinse spray valves.
"Manufacturers of the applicable products will find the webinar a valuable resource in understanding the new requirements and to ensure that they are compliant by the July 5 deadline," DeMarco said.
