Performance Requirements for Residential Gas Furnaces and Boilers; Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (8 page(s), in English)
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (Commission or CPSC) is considering developing a rule to address the risk of injury and death associated with carbon monoxide (CO) production and leakage from residential gas furnaces and boilers. This advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) initiates a rulemaking proceeding under the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA). We invite comments concerning the risk of injury associated with CO production and leakage from residential gas furnaces and boilers, the alternatives discussed in this ANPR, and other possible alternatives for addressing the risk. We also invite interested parties to submit existing voluntary standards or a statement of intent to modify or develop a voluntary standard that addresses the risk of injury described in this document.
