Type of Transaction Include the Type of Transaction associated with the certified model. Only the options included in the enumeration list may be provided. Initial certification must only be used if the model has never been submitted and does not have an ENERGY STAR Model Identifier. Registration must only be used for select types of models where EPA allows certification bodies to add previously qualified models to their programs for purposes of verification testing only. Modification must be used for administrative changes, including rerating the model(s). Certification withdrawn must be used when the model is no longer certified as ENERGY STAR. Recertification will rarely be used and must be approved by EPA prior to the transaction. R N Enumeration Data
  • Initial Certification

  • Certification Withdrawn
  • Recertification
  • Registration
Reason for Transaction Include the Reason for Transaction associated with the Type of Transaction. Only the reasons included in the enumeration list may be provided. If "other" is provided, list further details in the notes field. The certification body will determine when it is appropriate to use the reasons associated with "Initial Certification," "Registration" or "Modification." The reasons "Manufacturer Voluntary Withdrawal" and "No Longer Available" may be determined by the certification body and must only be associated with the transaction type "Certification Withdrawn." For all other cases of "Certification Withdrawn" or "Recertification," EPA must determine the appropriate reason and provide direction to the certification body. R N Enumeration Data

ENERGY STAR Model Identifier ENERGY_STAR_Model_Identifier is a unique string of characters generated by certification bodies in accordance with EPA's ENERGY_STAR_Model_Identifier standard. ENERGY_STAR_Model_Identifier serves to distinguish models with non-identical performance characteristics. A unique ENERGY_STAR_Model_Identifier must be assigned to each set of performance data that represents a model. Models in a family, series, or DOE basic model group that differ by one or more performance characteristics must be assigned different and unique ENERGY_STAR_Model_Identifiers. ENERGY_STAR_Model_Identifier is different from Certification_ID or Family_ID, which may apply to several models that differ in terms of reported attributes. Naming convention is as follows: ES_[[ManufacturerOID]]_[[MODELNUMBER]]_[[MMDDYYYYH24MISS]]_[[7 Digit-randomnumber]] Note : Total Max length of this must not exceed 400 characters. [[ManufacturerOID]] = Provide Manufacturer EPA issued O_ID [[MODELNUMBER]] = Provide Model Number of the model [[MMDDYYYYH24MISS]] = Create date time string in the format where MM= month number, DD - Day number, YYYY = Year number, H24 hours (0-23), MI minute number, SS seconds. This typically indicates the date of certification, but there are no validations performed on it. [[7 Digit-randomnumber]] = Provide a random number of seven digits. R N Text Min Length: 1
Max Length: 400
Certification ID Certification_ID is a unique string of characters generated by certification bodies in accordance with EPA's Certifcation_ID standard. Certification_ID serves to distinguish one or more models with differing performance characteristics under a single certification in order to track models associated with that certification. Naming convention for Certification_ID is as follows: CER_[[ManufacturerOID]]_[[MMDDYYYYH24MISS]]_[[7 Digit-randomnumber]] Note : Total Max length of this must not exceed 400 characters. [[ManufacturerOID]] = Provide Manufacturer EPA issues O_ID, [[MMDDYYYYH24MISS]] = Create date time string in the format where MM= month number, DD - Day number, YYYY = Year number, H24 hours (0-23), MI minute number, SS seconds. This typically indicates the date of certification, but there are no validations performed on it. [[7 Digit-randomnumber]] = Provide a random number of seven digits. R N Text Min Length: 1
Max Length: 400
Family ID Family_ID is a unique string of characters generated by certification bodies in accordance with EPA's Family_ID standard. Family_ID serves to identify models under the same certification that are part of the same model family, series, or DOE basic model group. Family_ID may only be included for models where the ENERGY STAR specification supports families. *NOTE* Under a single certification, certification bodies may or may not have a Family_ID listed. A Family_ID must not be listed if the certification is comprised of only a single model. If there is a Family_ID listed, all models within the certification listed must also have the same Family_ID. Naming conventions for Family_ID are as follows: FAM_[[ManufacturerOID]]_[[MMDDYYYYH24MISS]]_[[7 Digit-randomnumber]] Note : Total Max length of this must not exceed 400 characters. [[ManufacturerOID]] = Provide Manufacturer EPA issues O_ID, [[MMDDYYYYH24MISS]] = Create date time string in the format where MM= month number, DD - Day number, YYYY = Year number, H24 hours (0-23), MI minute number, SS seconds. This typically indicates the date of certification, but there are no validations performed on it. [[7 Digit-randomnumber]] = Provide a random number of seven digits. O N Text Max Length: 400
