Energy Conservation Program: Definitions for General Service Lamps (16 page(s), in English)
Notice of proposed rulemaking and announcement of public meeting - On 19 January 2017, the U.S. Department of Energy ("DOE") published two final rules adopting revised definitions of general service lamp ("GSL") and general service incandescent lamp ("GSIL"), and other supplemental definitions, to go into effect 1 January 2020. Prior to that effective date, on 5 September 2019, DOE withdrew the revised definitions of GSL, GSIL, and the other supplemental definitions. Upon further review and consideration, in this notice of proposed rulemaking ("NOPR"), DOE proposes to adopt the definitions of GSL and GSIL and the associated supplemental definitions set forth in the January 2017 final rules. This document also announces a public meeting to receive comment on these proposed definitions.
