Electric motors and generators (HS: Chapter 8501; ICS: 29)

Portable Generators

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (Commission or CPSC) has preliminarily determined that there is an unreasonable risk of injury and death associated with acute carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning from portable generators. To address this hazard, the Commission proposes a rule under the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA) that limits CO emissions from portable generators and requires generators to shut off when specific emissions levels are reached. The Commission is providing an opportunity for interested parties to present comments on this supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPR).

DATES: Deadline for Written Comments: Written comments must be received by 20 June 2023. WTO Members and their stakeholders are asked to submit comments to the USA WTO TBT Enquiry Point. Comments received by the USA TBT Enquiry Point from WTO Members and their stakeholders by 4pm Eastern Time on 20 June 2023 will be shared with the regulator and will also be submitted to the Docket on if received within the comment period.
