SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 30, 2015, ASRAC met and unanimously 
passed the recommendation to form a dedicated purpose pool pumps (DPPP) 
working group to meet and discuss and, if possible, reach consensus on 
proposed Federal rules that would apply to this equipment. The ASRAC 
Charter allowed for 3 months of working group meetings to establish the 
scope, metric, definitions, and test procedure for dedicated purpose 
pool pumps and decide on a path forward at that time. The working group 
met this requirement and now more time is required to discuss potential 
energy conservation standards for this equipment. On January 20, 2016, 
ASRAC met and recommended that the DPPP Working Group continue its work 
to develop and recommend potential energy conservation standards for 
this equipment. This notice announces the next series of meetings for 
this working group.
    DOE will host public meetings and webinars on the below dates. 
Meetings will be hosted at DOE's Forrestal Building, unless otherwise
