DOE Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for General Service Lamps

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking and request for comment. SUMMARY: On January 19, 2017, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published two final rules adopting revised definitions of general service lamp (GSL), general service incandescent lamp (GSIL) and other supplemental definitions, effective January 1, 2020.  DOE has since determined that the legal basis underlying those revisions misconstrued existing law.  As a result, DOE is issuing this notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) proposing to withdraw the definitions established in the January 19, 2017, final rules.  DOE proposes to maintain the existing regulatory definitions of GSL and GSIL, which are the same as the statutory definitions of those terms. DATES:  Meeting: DOE will hold a public meeting on February 28, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., in Washington, D.C. The meeting will also be broadcast as a webinar. https://www.energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2019/02/f59/withdrawal-of-gsl-definition-nopr.pdf
