United States (DOE) - Definitions for General Service Lamps
On 19 January 2017, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published two final rules adopting revised definitions of general service lamp (GSL) and general service incandescent lamp (GSIL), and other supplemental definitions, to go into effect 1 January 2020 (January 2017 Final Rules). Prior to that effective date, on 5 September 2019, the DOE withdrew the revised definitions of GSL, GSIL, and the other supplemental definitions. Upon further review and consideration, on 19 August 2021, the DOE published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) proposing to amend the definitions of GSL, GSIL and the other supplemental definitions as previously set forth in the January 2017 Final Rules. The DOE responded to comments received on the NOPR in this final rule and adopted the definitions of GSL and GSIL and the associated supplemental definitions set forth in the January 2017 Final Rules as proposed in the NOPR.
The effective date of this rule is 8 July 2022.
This final rule and the notice of proposed rulemaking and announcement of public meeting are identified by Docket Number EERE-2021-BT-STD-0012. The Docket Folder is available on Regulations.gov at https://www.regulations.gov/docket/EERE-2021-BT-STD-0012/document and provides access to primary and supporting documents as well as comments received.
