Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Federal Trade Commission is seeking comments by March 3 on labeling for several miscellaneous refrigeration products not covered by existing labeling requirements, including cooled cabinets, non-compressor refrigerators, hybrid refrigerators, compact hybrid refrigerators, hybrid freezers and residential ice makers. The Department of Energy believes that coverage of these products is both necessary and appropriate to carry out the goals of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act for conserving energy supplies and improving consumer product energy efficiency. Input may be submitted on whether labels for these products would assist consumers in their purchasing decisions. Preliminary DOE analysis suggests labeling would benefit consumers and be economically and technologically feasible.
