WASHINGTON — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) have finalized changes to the Energy Star program that address irregularities in the product-certification process. As previously reported in TWICE, manufacturers must now submit complete lab reports and results for review and approval by EPA prior to labeling their products as Energy Star-qualified.

EPA has also ended its automated approval process, and will begin individual reviews and approvals for all new applications.
