Policy Record

It is expected that EPA will periodically revise the program requirements during their implementation in response to partner questions and evolving standards (e.g., ENERGY STAR labeled product specifications, NAECA standards, model energy codes). The purpose of this revision process is to be responsive to partner questions, to disseminate policy changes in a consistent manner, and to adapt the program as needed for success. Revisions will be made on an as needed basis; however, it is expected that the guidelines will not be updated more frequently than every three months and that after a year of implementation, the updates will slow to every six months.
