Proposed Change to Energy Testing of Microwave Ovens
The Department of Energy has issued a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking concerning the energy test procedures for microwave ovens. The amendment proposed in this SNPR would update the procedures by incorporating the latest edition of International Electrotechnical Commission Standard 62301. The amended procedures that were issued in March 2011 to provide for the measurement of standby mode and off mode power by these products incorporate provisions from the first and second editions of this standard. Comments, data and information on any subject within the scope of this rulemaking may be submitted no later than Dec. 23.
