Description: Direct final rule - The Energy Policy and Conservation Act, as amended ("EPCA"), prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including consumer conventional cooking products. In this direct final rule, the U.S. Department of Energy ("DOE") is adopting new and amended energy conservation standards for consumer conventional cooking products. DOE has determined that the new and amended energy conservation standards for these products would result in significant conservation of energy, and are technologically feasible and economically justified.

The effective date of this rule is 13 June 2024. If adverse comments are received by 3 June 2024 and DOE determines that such comments may provide a reasonable basis for withdrawal of the direct final rule under 42 U.S.C. 6295(o), a timely withdrawal of this rule will be published in the Federal Register (and notified to the WTO TBT Committee). If no such adverse comments are received, compliance with the new and amended standards established for consumer conventional cooking products in this direct final rule is required on and after 31 January 2028. Comments regarding the likely competitive impact of the standards contained in this direct final rule should be sent to the Department of Justice contact listed in the ADDRESSES section on or before 15 March 2024.

This notice of proposed rulemaking and previous actions notified under the symbol G/TBT/N/USA/998 are identified by Docket Number EERE-2014-BT-STD-0005. The Docket Folder is available on at and provides access to primary and supporting documents as well as comments received. Documents are also accessible from by searching the Docket Number. WTO Members and their stakeholders are asked to submit comments to the USA TBT Enquiry Point. Comments received by the USA TBT Enquiry Point from WTO Members and their stakeholders by 4pm Eastern Time on 3 June 2024 will be shared with DOE and will also be submitted to the Docket on if received within the comment period.
