I. Authority and Background

    Title III of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (42 
U.S.C. 6291, et seq.; ``EPCA'' or, ``the Act'') \1\ sets forth a 
variety of provisions designed to improve energy efficiency. Part B of 
title III, which for editorial reasons was redesignated as Part A upon 
incorporation into the U.S. Code (42 U.S.C. 6291-6309, as codified), 
establishes the ``Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products 
Other Than Automobiles.'' This program includes general service lamps, 
the subject of this final rule.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ All references to EPCA refer to the statute as amended 
through the Energy Efficiency Improvement Act of 2015, Public Law 
114-11 (April 30, 2015).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Under EPCA, the energy conservation program consists essentially of 
four parts: (1) Testing, (2) labeling, (3) Federal energy conservation 
standards, and (4) certification and enforcement procedures. The 
testing requirements consist of test procedures that manufacturers of 
covered products must use as the basis for (1) certifying to DOE that 
their products comply with the applicable energy conservation standards 
adopted under EPCA (42 U.S.C. 6295(s)) and (2) making representations 
about the energy use or efficiency of those products (42 U.S.C. 
6293(c)). Similarly, DOE must use these test procedures to determine 
whether the products comply with any relevant standards promulgated 
under EPCA. (42 U.S.C. 6295(s))
    DOE issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) on March 17, 
2016, proposing energy conservation standards for general service lamps 
(GSLs). 81 FR 14528 (March 2016 GSL ECS NOPR). In support of the 
standards rulemaking, DOE has undertaken several rulemakings to amend 
existing test procedures and to adopt new test procedures for lamps 
that are GSLs. On July 1, 2016, DOE published a final rule adopting 
test procedures for integrated lighting-emitting diode (LED) lamps. 81 
FR 43404 (July 2016 LED TP final rule). On August 29, 2016, DOE 
published a final rule amending test procedures for medium base compact 
fluorescent lamps (MBCFLs) and adopting test procedures for new metrics 
for all compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) including hybrid CFLs and CFLs 
with bases other than medium screw base. 81 FR 59386 (August 2016 CFL 
TP final rule).
    The March 2016 GSL TP NOPR, which is the basis for this final rule, 
proposed test procedures for certain categories of GSLs not currently 
covered under these existing test procedures. 81 FR 14632 (March 17, 
2016). DOE published a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking 
(SNOPR) on July 20, 2016, that revised the March 2016 GSL TP NOPR 
proposal by referencing Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) LM-79-08 
for the testing of non-integrated LED lamps. 81 FR 47071 (July 2016 GSL 
TP SNOPR). This final rule adopts test procedures for certain 
categories of GSLs not currently covered under existing test 
procedures. Manufacturers of the lamps subject to this final rule will 
be required to use these test procedures to assess performance relative 
to any potential energy conservation standards the lamps must comply 
with in the future and for any representations of energy efficiency.
    Under 42 U.S.C. 6293(b), EPCA sets forth the criteria and 
procedures DOE must follow when prescribing or amending test procedures 
for covered products. EPCA provides, in relevant part, that any test 
procedures prescribed or amended under this section shall be reasonably 
designed to produce test results which measure energy efficiency, 
energy use or estimated annual operating cost of a covered product 
during a representative average use cycle or period of use and shall 
not be unduly burdensome to conduct. (42 U.S.C. 6293(b)(3)) Pursuant to 
this authority, DOE adopts test procedures in this final rule for 
certain categories of GSLs in support of the GSL standards rulemaking.
    Finally, EPCA directs DOE to amend its test procedures for all 
covered products to integrate measures of standby mode and off mode 
energy consumption, if technically feasible. (42 U.S.C. 6295(gg)(2)(A)) 
Standby mode and off mode energy must be incorporated into the overall 
energy efficiency, energy consumption, or other energy descriptor for 
each covered product unless the current test procedures already account 
for and incorporate standby and off mode energy consumption or such 
integration is technically infeasible. If an integrated test procedure 
is technically infeasible, DOE must prescribe a separate standby mode 
and off mode energy use test procedure for the covered product. Id. Any 
such amendment must consider the most current versions of the 
International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Standard 62301 and IEC 
Standard 62087, as applicable. DOE has determined that GSLs can operate 
in standby mode but not in off mode. Consistent with EPCA's 
requirement, DOE addresses measurement of standby mode power in 
appendix DD to subpart B of 10 CFR part 430, as detailed in section 
III.C of this final rule.

[[Page 72495]]

II. Synopsis of the Final Rule

    In this final rule, DOE adopts test procedures for determining 
initial lumen output, input power, lamp efficacy, power factor, and 
standby mode power for certain categories of GSLs for which DOE does 
not have an existing regulatory test procedure. DOE also notes that, 
beginning 180 days after the publication of this final rule, 
representations of energy use or energy efficiency must be based on 
testing in accordance with the test procedure adopted in this 
rulemaking.

III. Discussion

A. Scope of Applicability

    GSL is defined by EPCA to include general service incandescent 
lamps (GSILs), CFLs, general service LED or organic light-emitting 
diode (OLED) lamps, and any other lamp that DOE determines is used to 
satisfy lighting applications traditionally served by GSILs. (42 U.S.C. 
6291(30)(BB)) In the March 2016 GSL ECS NOPR, DOE proposed to implement 
the statutory definition of GSL and to include in the definition any 
lamp that has an ANSI \2\ base, operates at any voltage, has an initial 
lumen output of 310 lumens or greater (or 232 lumens or greater for 
modified spectrum GSILs), is not a light fixture, is not an LED 
downlight retrofit kit, and is used in general lighting applications. 
81 FR 14541. In the March 2016 GSL TP NOPR, DOE proposed test 
procedures for certain categories of general service lamps that do not 
have existing DOE regulatory procedures and clarified references to the 
existing DOE regulatory procedures for integrated LED lamps, CFLs, and 
GSILs. 81 FR 14632 (March 17, 2016) As there were no new comments 
received on the July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR regarding the scope of 
applicability of this rulemaking, this final rule adopts test 
procedures for GSLs that are not GSILs, CFLs, or integrated LED lamps.

B. Adopted Method for Determining Initial Lumen Output, Input Power, 
Lamp Efficacy, and Power Factor

    As described in section III.A, both the statutory definition and 
proposed regulatory definition of GSL cover many types of lamps using a 
variety of lighting technologies. For several of the included lamp 
types, energy conservation standards and test procedures already exist. 
GSILs are required to comply with the energy conservation standards in 
10 CFR 430.32(x), and test procedures for these lamps are specified in 
appendix R to subpart B of 10 CFR part 430. In a separate test 
procedure rulemaking, DOE recently amended the test procedures for 
MBCFLs and established new test procedures for all other CFLs. 81 FR 
59386. The updated and new test procedures appear at appendix W to 
subpart B of 10 CFR part 430. In addition, DOE recently adopted test 
procedures for integrated LED lamps. 81 FR 43404. The test procedures 
for integrated LED lamps are located in appendix BB to subpart B of 10 
CFR part 430.
    DOE proposed in the March 2016 GSL TP NOPR that, if DOE test 
procedures already exist or were proposed in an ongoing rulemaking 
(such as for GSILs, CFLs, and integrated LED lamps), DOE would 
reference those specific provisions in the GSL test procedures. For all 
other GSLs, DOE proposed new test procedures, intending to reference 
the most recently published versions of relevant industry standards. 81 
FR 14633-14634. DOE proposed modifications to the test procedures for 
non-integrated LED lamps in the July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR. 81 FR 47074-
47075. The following discussion summarizes those changes and comments 
received on the modifications to the proposed test procedures for non-
integrated LED lamps.
    In the March 2016 GSL TP NOPR, DOE proposed testing non-integrated 
LED lamps according to the industry test standard CIE S025. 81 FR 
14634. In the analysis phase of that NOPR, DOE determined that IES LM-
79-08 was not intended for non-integrated LED lamps given that IES LM-
79-08 states in section 1.1 that the test method covers ``LED-based SSL 
products with control electronics and heat sinks incorporated, that is, 
those devices that require only AC mains power or a DC voltage power 
supply to operate.'' Non-integrated LED lamps require external 
electronics; that is, the lamps are intended to connect to ballasts/
drivers rather than directly to the branch circuit through an ANSI base 
and corresponding ANSI standard lamp holder (socket).
    However, stakeholder feedback on the March 2016 GSL TP NOPR 
indicated that non-integrated LED lamps are commonly tested within 
industry according to IES LM-79-08. Further, based on a review of 
manufacturer specifications and input from independent testing 
laboratories, DOE determined that IES LM-79-08 is the most relevant 
industry standard, at the present time, for testing non-integrated LED 
lamps. 81 FR 47074. Although most manufacturers do not publish the test 
method used to determine performance characteristics of non-integrated 
LED lamps, DOE found that for those that did, IES LM-79-08 was the test 
method used to measure the performance of non-integrated LED lamps. 
See, for example, manufacturer specifications provided by Maxlite and 
Eiko available in the docket at: https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=EERE-2016-BT-TP-0005. In addition, DOE contacted independent 
test laboratories and found that the laboratories generally used IES 
LM-79-08 when testing non-integrated LED lamps because, even though it 
does not specifically include them, the laboratories view IES LM-79-08 
as the most applicable industry standard for these lamp types. 81 FR 
47074. In the July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR, DOE also preliminarily concluded 
that once it is determined how to supply the power to the lamp or on 
which ballast/driver to operate the lamp for testing, there was little 
difference in testing an integrated versus a non-integrated LED lamp. 
Further, DOE noted that some of these products had been tested and the 
results reported in the LED Lighting Facts database and the qualified 
products list for the Lighting Design Lab. Both of these organizations 
specify IES LM-79-08 as a test method for all included products. Id.
    Thus, upon reviewing the available information, DOE tentatively 
determined in the July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR that for the testing of non-
integrated LED lamps, IES LM-79-08 was the most relevant industry 
standard at the time. Further, DOE reviewed IES LM-79-08 and found it 
appropriate for testing non-integrated LED lamps for the purpose of 
determining compliance with energy efficiency standards that may be 
applicable in the future. However, because non-integrated LED lamps are 
not included in the scope of the industry standard, DOE prescribed 
additional instruction to ensure consistent and repeatable results. 
Specifically, DOE found that IES LM-79-08 provided no information on 
which external ballast/driver or power supply to use for testing. After 
reviewing the approaches of independent test laboratories, DOE proposed 
that non-integrated LED lamps be tested according to IES LM-79-08, 
using the manufacturer-declared input voltage and current as the power 
supply. Because these metrics are typically not reported on the product 
packaging or in manufacturer literature, DOE also proposed revising the 
requirements for certification reports to include these quantities for 
non-integrated LED lamps. While manufacturers usually list compatible 
ballasts/drivers for these products, DOE

[[Page 72496]]

noted that it is unknown with which ballast/driver these lamps may 
operate when installed in the field. By requiring these lamps to be 
tested using the manufacturer-declared input voltage and current as the 
power supply, DOE's approach is consistent with the industry practice 
of using reference ballasts for non-integrated lamps, such as non-
integrated CFLs and general service fluorescent lamps (GSFLs). For 
those products, industry standards (and DOE's test procedures) specify 
electrical settings for reference ballasts and each specific lamp type 
is tested using those same settings. Because industry had not yet 
developed reference ballast/driver settings for non-integrated LED 
lamps, DOE proposed that a manufacturer report the settings that are 
used, which allows for a consistent and comparable assessment of the 
lamp's performance. Therefore, DOE proposed the requirement that non-
integrated LED lamps be tested according to IES LM-79-08, using the 
manufacturer-declared input voltage and current as the power supply. 
Id.
    DOE received comments on the proposed modifications to the test 
procedures for non-integrated LED lamps. Philips Lighting (Philips) 
agreed with DOE's reference to IES LM-79-08 for the testing of non-
integrated LED lamps but with suggested modifications. (Philips, No. 12 
at p. 3) \3\ Specifically, Philips argued that requiring non-integrated 
LED lamps to be operated at the manufacturer-declared input voltage and 
current may create issues with non-integrated LED lamps that operate 
directly on an existing (i.e., already installed) ballast or with a 
dedicated LED driver that utilizes a pulse width modulated (PWM) output 
voltage. Philips suggested the following alternative wording to address 
the issue: ``For non-integrated LED lamps, operate the lamp at the 
manufacturer-declared input voltage waveform and current, or using a 
manufacturer-declared commercial ballast.'' Philips noted that the 
alternative wording captures any frequency that needs to be included if 
operated on a ballast, addresses PWM operation, and allows for the use 
of a specific ballast during testing. (Philips, No. 12 at p. 4)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ A notation in this form provides a reference for information 
that is in the docket of DOE's rulemaking to develop test procedures 
for GSLs (Docket No. EERE-2016-BT-TP-0005), which is maintained at 
www.regulations.gov. This notation indicates that the statement 
preceding the reference was made by Philips, is from document number 
12 in the docket, and appears at page 3 of that document.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    DOE notes that the test procedure must produce consistent and 
repeatable results as well as balance testing burden. Because a ballast 
and/or a provided input voltage and current can affect lamp 
performance, specific input settings need to be identified for testing. 
Otherwise, manufacturers would need to test every combination of lamp 
voltage and current with each ballast distributed in commerce. DOE 
notes that the alternative wording proposed by Philips allows the lamp 
to be operated on a manufacturer-declared input voltage and current or 
using a manufacturer-declared commercial ballast; however, only one of 
these options should be specified to improve the consistency and 
repeatability of results. DOE is therefore adopting that testing be 
conducted at the manufacturer-declared input voltage and current. These 
inputs can likely be supplied by existing lab equipment and do not 
require the purchase of additional ballasts for testing. DOE notes that 
certain ballasts may be difficult to acquire or possibly contain 
features that affect lamp performance. DOE therefore prefers to have 
manufacturers specify an input voltage and current to use for testing. 
In their alternative wording, Philips also suggested adding 
``waveform'' when specifying the input voltage to account for drivers 
that provide a PWM output voltage. DOE notes that a PWM output voltage 
could affect the measured performance of the lamp. PWM operation 
modifies the time the input signal is on versus the time it is off at a 
given frequency, and thereby the resulting input waveform can vary the 
average total input voltage. Varying the input voltage could impact the 
temperature and subsequently the performance of LED lamps. Therefore, 
test settings should be specified at one voltage and waveform so that 
test results for one lamp are consistent and repeatable. Rather than 
the manufacturer selecting this voltage and waveform, DOE is 
specifying, as proposed in the July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR, that 
manufacturers test the lamp at the voltage and waveform present at 
maximum input power. This provision for testing captures the most 
consumptive state and also allows for performance to be more fairly 
compared among available products. DOE understands a PWM output voltage 
to be a common output of dimming ballasts/drivers. By specifying the 
lamp be tested at the maximum input power, DOE not only captures the 
most consumptive state but also allows dimmable products to be more 
fairly compared to products that cannot dim by operating all lamps at 
maximum input power (i.e., full light output). In requiring that 
manufacturers specify input voltage and current and operate the lamp at 
full light output, DOE finds that no changes to the proposed wording 
are necessary for the testing of non-integrated LED lamps.
    The California Investor Owned Utilities (CA IOUs) contended that 
because operating non-integrated LED lamps at the manufacturer-declared 
input voltage and current does not account for ballast losses which can 
be up to several watts, the test procedure does not accurately measure 
system luminous efficacy. CA IOUs noted that if only lamp wattage is 
measured and ballast losses are not accounted for, these lamps will 
appear more efficient than they are in practice. CA IOUs added that the 
test procedure should account for the energy consumption of each 
component necessary for the starting and stable operation of the lamp, 
which includes a ballast if paired with a non-integrated LED lamp. 
Thus, CA IOUs recommended DOE require that manufacturers use a 
commercially-available reference ballast for testing non-integrated LED 
lamps and report to DOE the ballast utilized in testing. CA IOUs 
concluded that a commercially-available ballast would better 
approximate actual installed conditions rather than using customized 
testing equipment designed to achieve low power losses. (CA IOUs, No. 
11 at pp. 1-2)
    As stated by CA IOUs, when testing on a commercially available 
ballast/driver, the losses associated with the ballast/driver would be 
included in the measured performance of the lamp. Including the 
ballast/driver losses in the measured performance of the lamp would 
result in a lower efficacy value (i.e., system efficacy) than when 
measuring the performance of the lamp using manufacturer-declared input 
voltage and current as the power supply. In addition, allowing testing 
on commercially available ballasts/drivers could generate inconsistent 
test results across products as lamps would not be tested using the 
same settings, and the performance of the lamp would be dictated by the 
ballast/driver it was paired with during testing. Hence, consistent 
test results for the same lamp would not be possible. Therefore, DOE is 
adopting the requirement that manufacturers operate non-integrated LED 
lamps during testing using the manufacturer-declared input voltage and 
current, and is not allowing for testing on commercially available 
ballast/drivers. DOE notes that although the testing of integrated 
lamps includes ballast/driver losses, integrated lamps can operate on 
only one ballast (i.e., the

[[Page 72497]]

ballast contained within the lamp unit that cannot be removed) and 
therefore the inclusion of that ballast reflects typical performance. 
Non-integrated lamps can be commonly operated on more than one ballast/
driver and therefore DOE is specifying test settings to consistently 
characterize the performance of the lamp. DOE also notes that the 
approach being adopted today for non-integrated LED lamps is comparable 
to DOE's regulatory approach for other non-integrated lamps (e.g., 
GSFLs). While DOE acknowledges there may be losses associated with the 
commercially available ballasts paired with non-integrated lamps, DOE 
is declining to adopt the recommendation of the CA IOUs at this time. 
DOE does not believe consumers will be confused by this difference in 
approach for integrated lamps and non-integrated lamps because 
consumers do not typically compare these two categories of products 
because they serve different installations. The metric reflects the 
performance of the product tested rather than its performance on a 
unique, external component, which would significantly increase the 
burden due to the number of lamp and ballast/driver combinations. DOE 
will continue to work with stakeholders to monitor the ballast/driver 
losses and may consider an alternative approach in a future rulemaking.
    Regarding the requirement for manufacturers to report the 
manufacturer-declared input voltage and current used for testing non-
integrated LED lamps, Philips agreed with the proposal but noted that 
these settings should not be made available to the public as they do 
not typically appear on datasheets. (Philips, No. 12 at p. 3) DOE notes 
that it found some publicly available datasheets with input voltage and 
current listed for non-integrated LED lamps indicating that this 
information is not likely to be considered proprietary. See, e.g., 
https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=EERE-2016-BT-TP-0005. 
Additionally, publishing manufacturer-declared input voltage and 
current allows for comparison of performance across products. 
Therefore, DOE adopts the requirement in this final rule for 
manufacturers to include the manufacturer-declared input voltage and 
current used for testing in the certification reports for non-
integrated LED lamps.
    In the July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR, DOE referred to appendix R for 
general service incandescent lamps, to appendix BB for integrated LED 
lamps, to IES LM-45-15 for other incandescent lamps that are not 
reflector lamps, and to IES LM-79-08 for OLED lamps. DOE reviewed all 
references to industry standards to ensure that only necessary sections 
were referenced. DOE removed all references to sections describing 
luminous intensity and/or color measurements as these are not necessary 
for the metrics covered by the test procedure. DOE also made references 
to IES LM-79-08 consistent with sections referenced in the July 2016 
LED TP final rule; that is, DOE added a reference to section 1.3 
(Nomenclature and Definitions) and removed the reference to section 6.0 
(Operating Orientation). Additionally, DOE specified the appropriate 
operating orientation directly in appendix DD. 81 FR 47075.
    Philips commented in general agreement with DOE's references to 
industry standards; however, Philips recommended DOE reference IES LM-
79-08 in its entirety rather than selected sections. (Philips, No. 12 
at p. 3) When providing comprehensive test procedures for multiple test 
metrics, DOE often has to clarify, limit, or add further specification 
to industry standards that are referenced to ensure consistent, 
repeatable results. Therefore, instead of incorporating an industry 
standard in its entirety, DOE references the relevant sections of the 
industry standard and clearly states any directions that differ from 
those in the industry standard.
    Philips also commented on the language proposed in the July 2016 
GSL TP SNOPR regarding operating orientation. In section 3.3 of 
appendix DD, DOE proposed an equal number of lamps in a sample be 
tested in the base-up and base-down orientation, except if the 
manufacturer restricts the position, in which case all units would be 
tested in the manufacturer-specified position. Philips argued that this 
is not a practical requirement for non-integrated LED lamps intended to 
replace linear lamps, which do not have a base-up or base-down 
orientation and are operated and tested horizontally in practice. 
Therefore, Philips suggested the operating orientation during testing 
should be as specified by the manufacturer. (Philips, No. 12 at p. 4) 
DOE notes that operating orientation is not typically specified on the 
packaging or specification sheets of LED lamps. DOE agrees, however 
that certain non-integrated LED lamps, such as double base non-
integrated LED lamps designed to replace linear fluorescent lamps, 
cannot be operated in a base-up or base-down position since there are 
bases on both ends. Thus, DOE is modifying the operating orientation 
requirement in this final rule for testing double base lamps to state 
that manufacturers are to test all units in the horizontal orientation 
except that, if the manufacturer restricts the position, manufacturers 
are to test all of the units in the sample in the manufacturer-
specified position. DOE is also specifying in this final rule that 
orientation is to be maintained as prescribed in the active mode test 
procedure when determining standby mode power.
    In the March 2016 GSL TP NOPR, DOE proposed a new paragraph to be 
added to 10 CFR 430.23 to establish test procedures for all GSLs. 81 FR 
14640. As stated previously, if test procedures already existed for a 
lamp type that meets the definition of GSL, DOE referenced the existing 
test procedure. Thus, in the paragraph proposed to be added to 10 CFR 
430.23, DOE included references to the existing paragraphs in Sec.  
430.23 for those GSLs that already have test procedures and the metrics 
required by those existing test procedures. DOE received a comment from 
Philips on the proposed amendments to Sec.  430.23. Specifically, 
Philips objected to the inclusion of start time as a metric for both 
integrated and non-integrated CFLs. Philips noted that it should not be 
included for non-integrated CFLs, as start time is highly dependent on 
the type of ballast paired with the non-integrated CFL. (Philips, No. 
12 at p. 4) As stated previously, DOE simply referenced existing DOE 
test procedures in Sec.  430.23 when possible. DOE further notes that 
for CFLs, the GSL test procedure references the test procedures adopted 
and amended in the August 2016 CFL TP final rule, which established a 
start time test procedure only for integrated CFLs. 81 FR 59396.
    DOE did not receive any additional comments on its approach to 
referring to DOE test procedures if they already exist and referring to 
the most recent versions of relevant industry standards for lamp types 
that do not have existing DOE test procedures. Thus, DOE adopts this 
approach in the final rule. Table III.1 summarizes the test procedures 
that DOE is adopting for general service lamps.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

C. Adopted Method for Determining Standby Mode Power

    As described in section I, EPCA directs DOE to amend its test 
procedures for all covered products to integrate measures of standby 
mode and off mode energy consumption, if technically feasible. (42 
U.S.C. 6295(gg)(2)(A)) In the March 2016 GSL TP NOPR, DOE proposed both 
active mode and standby mode test procedures for general service lamps. 
DOE did not propose a test procedure for off mode energy consumption 
because DOE initially determined that it would not be possible for GSLs 
included in the scope of the energy conservation standards rulemaking 
to meet the off-mode criteria. 81 FR 14634. DOE found that there was no 
condition in which a GSL connected to main power is not already in a 
mode accounted for in either active or standby mode. Id. DOE proposed 
to use the standby mode test procedures outlined in the IEC Standard 
62301, which applies generally to household electrical appliances. 
Referencing IEC 62301 is consistent with the standby mode test 
procedures adopted for CFLs and integrated LED lamps. 81 FR 59401 and 
81 FR 43415.
    DOE received several comments in response to the March 2016 GSL TP 
NOPR regarding the proposed method for determining standby mode power. 
Osram Sylvania, Inc. (OSI) and National Electrical Manufacturers 
Association (NEMA) supported DOE's proposed test method for measuring 
standby mode power use, which they stated is consistent with other DOE 
test procedures and with industry practices. (OSI, No. 3 at p. 3; NEMA, 
No. 6 at p. 3) However, CA IOUs suggested a change to the standby mode 
test procedure. CA IOUs recommended that DOE specify testing with the 
communication protocol expected to have the highest energy consumption 
and provide a prioritization of the potential communication protocols 
available. If multiple communication protocols (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 
ZigBee, etc.) are available, CA IOUs recommended specifying that the 
communication protocol should be selected based on the following order: 
1) Wi-Fi; 2) ZigBee; 3) ANT; 4) Bluetooth; 5) Other Radio Frequency 
(RF) Protocols; 6) Infrared (IR); 7) Other; 8) Wired. CA IOUs also 
recommended DOE require testing be conducted in the applicable 
communication mode that is representative of the operation mode that is 
typical of the end user (i.e., normal operating mode as shipped). (CA 
IOUs, No. 11 at p. 2)
    DOE reviewed lamps that can operate in standby mode and found that 
average standby power did not vary consistently by communication 
protocol. DOE reviewed the test data published in the technical support 
document \4\ of the March 2016 GSL ECS NOPR and also test data 
submitted in a comment by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company, 
Southern California Gas Company, San Diego Gas and Electric, Southern 
California Edison, Arizona Public Service, and National Grid (Utility 
Coalition) in support of the GSL ECS rulemaking.\5\ In both datasets, 
DOE found that the standby power of the communication protocols tested 
were generally available in a range of values and one communication 
protocol did not have consistently higher or lower power consumption 
than another. For example, data provided by CA IOUs showed the standby 
mode power of lamps operating using Wi-Fi varying from a minimum of 
0.237 W to a maximum of 0.401 W (excluding the noted outlier of 2.42 W) 
and the standby mode power of lamps operating using ZigBee varying from 
a minimum of 0.185 W to a maximum of 0.439 W. With no clear trend, DOE 
is not specifying a prioritization order for testing at this time. DOE 
will continue to monitor the market and will revise the test procedure 
as needed as the market develops.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ The technical support document of the March 2016 GSL ECS 
NOPR is available at https://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=EERE-2013-BT-STD-0051-0042.
    \5\ Comments submitted in support of the GSL ECS rulemaking are 
available at the rulemaking docket at https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=EERE-2013-BT-STD-0051
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CA IOUs also commented that for connected products that may 
continue to search for control signals after receiving the last signal, 
waiting at least 60 minutes after the last signal before performing a 
standby mode power measurement would allow such products to enter a 
lower power state. CA IOUs noted that this would ensure that the 
product mode under test is representative of the power drawn the 
majority of the time the product is in standby mode. (CA IOUs, No. 11 
at p. 2) In the March 2016 GSL TP NOPR, DOE proposed that standby mode 
power measurements be taken after the lamp had stabilized according to 
section 5 of IEC 62301. 81 FR 14640. The stabilization requirements 
ensure that the lamp has reached steady-state operation prior to taking 
measurements. Requiring a minimum period of at least 60 minutes before 
taking measurements is an unnecessary instruction because the 
stabilization requirements achieve the same goal of ensuring that the 
product is consuming a consistent amount of power. Therefore, in this 
final rule, DOE is not adding a requirement to wait at least 60 minutes 
after receiving the last communication signal before measuring standby 
mode power consumption.
    As there were no other comments received on DOE's proposed method 
for determining standby mode power, DOE adopts the standby mode test 
procedure proposed in the March 2016 GSL TP NOPR in this final rule.

D. Laboratory Accreditation

    In the July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR, DOE proposed to require that testing 
of initial lumen output, input power, lamp efficacy, power factor, and 
standby mode power (if applicable) for GSLs be conducted by test 
laboratories accredited by an Accreditation Body that is a signatory 
member to the

[[Page 72499]]

International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) Mutual 
Recognition Arrangement (MRA). 81 FR 47076. DOE noted that under 
existing test procedure regulations, testing for other regulated 
lighting products (such as general service fluorescent lamps, 
incandescent reflector lamps, and fluorescent lamp ballasts), in 
addition to general service lamps that must already comply with energy 
conservation standards (such as general service incandescent lamps and 
medium base compact fluorescent lamps), must be conducted in a 
similarly accredited facility. 10 CFR 430.25. DOE also proposed to 
align the proposed certification report language in Sec.  429.57(b) 
with the proposed changes in Sec.  430.25. Similarly, DOE proposed to 
update Sec.  429.27(b) and Sec.  429.35(b) to align with the proposed 
changes regarding accreditation bodies in Sec.  430.25. Id.
    DOE received a comment from Philips on the proposed certification 
report language regarding ILAC accreditation in Sec.  429.35(b)(2). 
Philips noted that ILAC does not assign identification numbers to test 
laboratories; instead, the identification numbers come from 
accreditation bodies. Philips suggested DOE modify the language to 
state that the certification report must include the ``testing 
laboratory's identification number, or other approved identification, 
as assigned by the accreditation body . . .'' (Philips, No. 12 at p. 4) 
DOE notes that the language requiring ``the testing laboratory's ILAC 
accreditation body's identification number or other approved 
identification assigned by the ILAC accreditation body'' is not 
intended to imply that ILAC assigns the identification number to test 
laboratories, rather the language suggests that the ILAC-approved 
accreditation body would supply an identification number or another 
form of identification. Thus, DOE maintains that using ``ILAC'' as a 
designator to ``accreditation body'' in the regulatory text is 
necessary to ensure that the accreditation bodies are ILAC-approved.
    DOE notes that the certification report language revision in Sec.  
429.35(b) was previously adopted in the August 2016 CFL TP final rule 
and therefore is no longer included in this test procedure.

E. Represented Values, Certification, and Rounding Requirements

    In the March 2016 GSL TP NOPR, DOE proposed to create a new section 
for GSLs, 10 CFR 429.57, to provide sampling, represented value, 
certification, and rounding requirements. 81 FR 14634. Existing 
sampling procedures in 10 CFR part 429 are referenced, where 
applicable. If a test procedure does not currently exist, sampling and 
represented value calculations reference the existing DOE test 
procedure with the most similar lamp technology. For example, sampling 
and represented value calculations for OLED lamps are to be as 
described in section 10 CFR 429.56, the section that addresses 
integrated LED lamps. DOE also proposed certification and rounding 
requirements to include the relevant metrics for general service lamps. 
Rounding requirements are consistent with those for GSILs, CFLs, and 
integrated LED lamps. 81 FR 59415-59416 and 81 FR 43425-43426.
    DOE did not make any modifications to this approach in the July 
2016 GSL TP SNOPR and received no comments on these requirements; 
therefore, DOE adopts them in this final rule.

F. Effective Date and Compliance Dates

    The test procedures adopted in this final rule for GSLs that are 
not integrated LED lamps, CFLs, or GSILs, are effective 30 days after 
publication in the Federal Register (referred to as the ``effective 
date''). DOE notes that manufacturers may voluntarily begin to make 
representations with respect to the energy use or efficiency of GSLs 
that are not integrated LED lamps, CFLs, and GSILs using the results of 
testing pursuant to this final rule, starting on the effective date of 
this final rule. Pursuant to EPCA, manufacturers of covered products 
are required to use the applicable test procedure as the basis for 
determining that their products comply with the applicable energy 
conservation standards and for making representations about the 
efficiency of those products. (42 U.S.C. 6293(c); 42 U.S.C. 6295(s)) 
For those energy efficiency or consumption metrics covered by the DOE 
test procedure (i.e., the test method and sampling plan), EPCA requires 
that, beginning 180 days after publication of this final rule in the 
Federal Register, representations must reflect testing in accordance 
with the DOE test procedure. (42 U.S.C. 6293(c)(2)) Therefore, on or 
after 180 days after publication of this final rule, any 
representations, including certifications of compliance (if required), 
made with respect to the energy use or efficiency of GSLs that are not 
integrated LED lamps, CFLs, and GSILs must reflect the results of 
testing pursuant to this final rule.
    DOE received comments regarding the dates discussed in the July 
2016 GSL TP SNOPR. Philips commented that due to the volume of lamps 
covered under the scope of the rulemaking, DOE should require that 
manufacturers make representations based on this test procedure only 
for GSLs that have initiated testing after the effective date of the 
test procedure (i.e., only new products should be tested under the test 
procedure). Philips noted that DOE could add ``test start date'' to the 
certification reports to ensure manufacturers comply. Philips concluded 
that retesting lamps is unproductive, burdensome on industry, and 
diverts resources from testing new products that are more efficient. 
(Philips, No. 12 at p. 3) DOE notes that existing basic models need 
only be retested if their representative values would no longer be 
valid under the test procedures adopted in this rulemaking. Because DOE 
has referenced the most recent versions of relevant industry standards 
for the lamp types covered by this rulemaking, it is unlikely that all 
of a manufacturer's existing basic models will need to be re-tested. 
After the effective date of this final rule (i.e., 30 days after 
publication in the Federal Register), all new basic models must be 
tested in accordance with appendix DD. EPCA requires that on or after 
180 days after publication of this final rule, the representations of 
existing basic models of GSLs that will no longer be valid must reflect 
testing in accordance with the adopted test procedures in appendix DD. 
In addition, DOE notes that under 42 U.S.C. 6293(c)(3), manufacturers 
may petition the Secretary for an extension of the compliance date for 
up to 180 days. Manufacturers may be granted an extension if the 
Secretary determines that the requirements would impose an undue 
hardship on the petitioner. (See 42 U.S.C. 6293(c)(3))

IV. Procedural Issues and Regulatory Review

A. Review Under Executive Order 12866

    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has determined that test 
procedure rulemakings do not constitute ``significant regulatory 
actions'' under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory 
Planning and Review, 58 FR 51735 (Oct. 4, 1993). Accordingly, this 
action was not subject to review under the Executive Order by the 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) in the OMB.

B. Review Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) requires that 
when an agency promulgates a final rule under 5 U.S.C. 553, after being 
required by that section or any other law to publish a general notice 
of proposed rulemaking, the agency shall prepare a final regulatory 
flexibility analysis (FRFA),

[[Page 72500]]

unless the agency certifies that the rule will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. As required 
by Executive Order 13272, ``Proper Consideration of Small Entities in 
Agency Rulemaking,'' 67 FR 53461 (August 16, 2002), DOE published 
procedures and policies on February 19, 2003 to ensure that the 
potential impacts of its rules on small entities are properly 
considered during the DOE rulemaking process. 68 FR 7990. DOE has made 
its procedures and policies available on the Office of the General 
Counsel's Web site: http://energy.gov/gc/office-general-counsel.
    DOE reviewed this final rule under the provisions of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act and the procedures and policies published on February 
19, 2003. DOE certifies that the rule will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The factual 
basis for this certification is set forth in the following sections.
    The Small Business Administration (SBA) considers a business entity 
to be a small business, if, together with its affiliates, it employs 
less than a threshold number of workers specified in 13 CFR part 121. 
These size standards and codes are established by the North American 
Industry Classification System (NAICS). Manufacturing of GSLs is 
classified under NAICS 335110, ``Electric Lamp Bulb and Part 
Manufacturing.'' The SBA sets a threshold of 1,250 employees or less 
for an entity to be considered as a small business for this category.
    In the July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR, to estimate the number of companies 
that could be small businesses that sell GSLs, DOE conducted a market 
survey using publicly available information. DOE's research involved 
information provided by trade associations (e.g., the National 
Electrical Manufacturers' Association) and information from DOE's 
Compliance Certification Management System (CCMS) Database, the 
Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR Certified Light Bulbs 
Database, LED Lighting Facts Database, previous rulemakings, individual 
company Web sites, SBA's database, and market research tools (e.g., 
Hoover's reports). DOE screened out companies that did not meet the 
definition of a ``small business'' or are completely foreign owned and 
operated. DOE determined that nine companies are small businesses that 
maintain domestic production facilities for GSLs. 81 FR 47077. DOE did 
not receive comments on this determination, therefore it was maintained 
in the final rule.
    In the July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR, DOE proposed test procedures for 
determining initial lumen output, input power, lamp efficacy, power 
factor, and standby power of GSLs. DOE noted that several of the lamp 
types included in the definition of general service lamp must already 
comply with energy conservation standards and therefore test procedures 
already existed for these lamps. If DOE test procedures already existed 
or were proposed in an ongoing rulemaking (such as for GSILs, CFLs, and 
integrated LED lamps), DOE proposed to reference them directly. For all 
other general service lamps, DOE proposed new test procedures in the 
July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR. For the new test procedures, DOE proposed to 
reference the most recent versions of relevant industry standards.
    DOE estimated the testing costs and burden associated with 
conducting testing according to the new test procedures proposed in the 
July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR for GSLs. DOE did not consider the costs and 
burdens associated with DOE test procedures that already exist or that 
have been proposed in other ongoing rulemakings because these have been 
or are being addressed separately. DOE also assessed elements (testing 
methodology, testing times, and sample size) in the CFL and integrated 
LED lamp test procedures that could affect costs associated with 
complying with this rule. Having received no comments on the topic, the 
cost estimates of this final rule are the same as those determined 
under the July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR. The following is an analysis of both 
in-house and third party testing costs associated with this rulemaking.
    In the July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR, DOE estimated that the labor costs 
associated with conducting in-house testing of initial lumen output, 
input power, and standby mode power were $41.68 per hour. DOE 
determined that calculating efficacy and power factor of a GSL would 
not result in any incremental testing burden beyond the cost of 
conducting the initial lumen output and input power testing. The cost 
of labor was then calculated by multiplying the estimated hours of 
labor by the hourly labor rate. For lamps not capable of operating in 
standby mode, DOE estimated that testing in-house in accordance with 
the appropriate proposed test procedure would require, at most, four 
hours per lamp by an electrical engineering technician. For lamps 
capable of operating in standby mode, DOE estimated that testing time 
would increase to five hours per lamp due to the additional standby 
mode power consumption test. DOE noted that these estimates are 
representative of the time it would take to test the most labor 
intensive technology, LED lamps. In total, DOE estimated that using the 
test method prescribed in the July 2016 GSL TP SNOPR to determine 
initial light output and input power would result in an estimated labor 
burden of $1,670 per basic model of certain GSLs and $2,080 per basic 
model of certain GSLs that can operate in standby mode. 81 FR 47078.
    Because accreditation bodies \6\ impose a variety of fees during 
the accreditation process, including fixed administrative fees, 
variable assessment fees, and proficiency testing fees, DOE included 
the costs associated with maintaining a NVLAP-accredited facility or a 
facility accredited by an organization recognized by NVLAP in the July 
2016 GSL TP SNOPR. In the first year, for manufacturers without NVLAP 
accreditation who choose to test in-house, DOE estimated manufacturers 
on average would experience a maximum total cost burden of about $2,210 
per basic model tested or $2,630 per basic model with standby mode 
power consumption testing.\7\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ As discussed in section III.D, laboratories can be 
accredited by any accreditation body that is a signatory member to 
the ILAC MRA. DOE based its estimate of the costs associated with 
accreditation on the NVLAP accreditation body.
    \7\ NVLAP costs are fixed and were distributed based on an 
estimate of 28 basic models per manufacturer.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Additionally, DOE requested pricing from independent testing 
laboratories for testing GSLs. DOE estimated the cost for testing at an 
independent laboratory to be up to $1,070 per basic model. This 
estimate included the cost of accreditation as quotes were obtained 
from accredited laboratories. Id.
    DOE notes that its adopted test procedures directly reference 
existing industry standards that have been approved for widespread use 
by lamp manufacturers and test laboratories. The quantities that are 
directly measured, namely initial lumen output and input power, are 
commonly reported by the manufacturer on product packaging and on 
product specification sheets. Thus, testing for these quantities is 
already being conducted. Additionally, these quantities are required to 
be reported to ENERGY STAR if manufacturers certify the lamps as 
meeting the program requirements. Standby mode power consumption is 
also a reported quantity for the ENERGY STAR program, though it may not 
be a commonly reported value for lamps that are not certified with 
ENERGY STAR. In reviewing the lamps for which DOE adopts test 
procedures in this final rule, DOE notes that very few products can 
operate in standby mode and therefore very few

[[Page 72501]]

products would be required to make representations of standby mode 
energy consumption. Although DOE is adopting the requirement that all 
testing be conducted in accredited laboratories, DOE notes that many 
manufacturers of these products have already accredited their own in-
house laboratories because they also make products such as GSILs and 
CFLs that are required to be tested in similarly accredited 
laboratories.
    In summary, DOE does not consider the test procedures adopted in 
this final rule to have a significant economic impact on small 
entities. The final cost per manufacturer primarily depends on the 
number of basic models the manufacturer sells. These are not annual 
costs because DOE does not require manufacturers to retest a basic 
model annually. The initial test results used to generate a certified 
rating for a basic model remain valid as long as the basic model has 
not been modified from the tested design in a way that makes it less 
efficient or more consumptive, which would require a change to the 
certified rating. If a manufacturer has modified a basic model in a way 
that makes it more efficient or less consumptive, new testing is 
required only if the manufacturer wishes to make representations of the 
new, more efficient rating.
    Based on the criteria outlined earlier and the reasons discussed in 
this preamble, DOE certifies that the test procedures adopted in this 
final rule would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities, and the preparation of a final 
regulatory flexibility analysis is not warranted. DOE has submitted a 
certification and supporting statement of factual basis to the Chief 
Counsel for Advocacy of the SBA for review under 5 U.S.C. 605(b).

C. Review Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995

    DOE established regulations for the certification and recordkeeping 
requirements for certain covered consumer products and commercial 
equipment. 10 CFR part 429, subpart B. This collection-of-information 
requirement was approved by OMB under OMB control number 1910-1400.
    DOE requested OMB approval of an extension of this information 
collection for three years, specifically including the collection of 
information proposed in the present rulemaking, and estimated that the 
annual number of burden hours under this extension is 30 hours per 
company. In response to DOE's request, OMB approved DOE's information 
collection requirements covered under OMB control number 1910-1400 
through November 30, 2017. 80 FR 5099 (January 30, 2015).
    Notwithstanding any other provision of the law, no person is 
required to respond to, nor must any person be subject to a penalty for 
failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the 
requirements of the PRA, unless that collection of information displays 
a currently valid OMB control number.

D. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969

    In this final rule, DOE adopts test procedures for certain 
categories of GSLs that will be used to support the ongoing GSL 
standards rulemaking. DOE has determined that this rule falls into a 
class of actions that are categorically excluded from review under the 
National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and 
DOE's implementing regulations at 10 CFR part 1021. Specifically, this 
final rule adopts existing industry test procedures for certain 
categories of general service lamps, so it will not affect the amount, 
quality or distribution of energy usage, and, therefore, will not 
result in any environmental impacts. Thus, this rulemaking is covered 
by Categorical Exclusion A6 under 10 CFR part 1021, subpart D. 
Accordingly, neither an environmental assessment nor an environmental 
impact statement is required.

E. Review Under Executive Order 13132

    Executive Order 13132, ``Federalism,'' 64 FR 43255 (August 4, 
1999), imposes certain requirements on agencies formulating and 
implementing policies or regulations that preempt State law or that 
have Federalism implications. The Executive Order requires agencies to 
examine the constitutional and statutory authority supporting any 
action that would limit the policymaking discretion of the States and 
to carefully assess the necessity for such actions. The Executive Order 
also requires agencies to have an accountable process to ensure 
meaningful and timely input by State and local officials in the 
development of regulatory policies that have Federalism implications. 
On March 14, 2000, DOE published a statement of policy describing the 
intergovernmental consultation process it will follow in the 
development of such regulations. 65 FR 13735. DOE examined this final 
rule and determined that it will not have a substantial direct effect 
on the States, on the relationship between the national government and 
the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among 
the various levels of government. EPCA governs and prescribes Federal 
preemption of State regulations as to energy conservation for the 
products that are the subject of this final rule. States can petition 
DOE for exemption from such preemption to the extent, and based on 
criteria, set forth in EPCA. (42 U.S.C. 6297(d)) No further action is 
required by Executive Order 13132.

F. Review Under Executive Order 12988

    Regarding the review of existing regulations and the promulgation 
of new regulations, section 3(a) of Executive Order 12988, ``Civil 
Justice Reform,'' 61 FR 4729 (Feb. 7, 1996), imposes on Federal 
agencies the general duty to adhere to the following requirements: (1) 
Eliminate drafting errors and ambiguity; (2) write regulations to 
minimize litigation; (3) provide a clear legal standard for affected 
conduct rather than a general standard; and (4) promote simplification 
and burden reduction. Section 3(b) of Executive Order 12988 
specifically requires that Executive agencies make every reasonable 
effort to ensure that the regulation (1) clearly specifies the 
preemptive effect, if any; (2) clearly specifies any effect on existing 
Federal law or regulation; (3) provides a clear legal standard for 
affected conduct while promoting simplification and burden reduction; 
(4) specifies the retroactive effect, if any; (5) adequately defines 
key terms; and (6) addresses other important issues affecting clarity 
and general draftsmanship under any guidelines issued by the Attorney 
General. Section 3(c) of Executive Order 12988 requires Executive 
agencies to review regulations in light of applicable standards in 
sections 3(a) and 3(b) to determine whether they are met or it is 
unreasonable to meet one or more of them. DOE has completed the 
required review and determined that, to the extent permitted by law, 
this final rule meets the relevant standards of Executive Order 12988.

G. Review Under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

    Title II of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) 
requires each Federal agency to assess the effects of Federal 
regulatory actions on State, local, and Tribal governments and the 
private sector. Public Law 104-4, sec. 201 (codified at 2 U.S.C. 1531). 
For a regulatory action resulting in a rule that may cause the 
expenditure by State, local, and Tribal governments, in the aggregate, 
or by the private sector of $100 million or more in any one year 
(adjusted annually for inflation), section 202 of UMRA requires a 
Federal agency to publish a written statement that

[[Page 72502]]

estimates the resulting costs, benefits, and other effects on the 
national economy. (2 U.S.C. 1532(a), (b)) The UMRA also requires a 
Federal agency to develop an effective process to permit timely input 
by elected officers of State, local, and Tribal governments on a 
proposed ``significant intergovernmental mandate,'' and requires an 
agency plan for giving notice and opportunity for timely input to 
potentially affected small governments before establishing any 
requirements that might significantly or uniquely affect small 
governments. On March 18, 1997, DOE published a statement of policy on 
its process for intergovernmental consultation under UMRA. 62 FR 12820; 
also available at http://energy.gov/gc/office-general-counsel. DOE 
examined this final rule according to UMRA and its statement of policy 
and determined that the rule contains neither an intergovernmental 
mandate, nor a mandate that may result in the expenditure of $100 
million or more in any year, so these requirements do not apply.

H. Review Under the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act, 
1999

    Section 654 of the Treasury and General Government Appropriations 
Act, 1999 (Pub. L. 105-277) requires Federal agencies to issue a Family 
Policymaking Assessment for any rule that may affect family well-being. 
This final rule will not have any impact on the autonomy or integrity 
of the family as an institution. Accordingly, DOE has concluded that it 
is not necessary to prepare a Family Policymaking Assessment.

I. Review Under Executive Order 12630

    DOE has determined, under Executive Order 12630, ``Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights'' 53 FR 8859 (March 18, 1988), that this regulation will not 
result in any takings that might require compensation under the Fifth 
Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

J. Review Under Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act, 
2001

    Section 515 of the Treasury and General Government Appropriations 
Act, 2001 (44 U.S.C. 3516 note) provides for agencies to review most 
disseminations of information to the public under guidelines 
established by each agency pursuant to general guidelines issued by 
OMB. OMB's guidelines were published at 67 FR 8452 (Feb. 22, 2002), and 
DOE's guidelines were published at 67 FR 62446 (Oct. 7, 2002). DOE has 
reviewed this final rule under the OMB and DOE guidelines and has 
concluded that it is consistent with applicable policies in those 
guidelines.

K. Review Under Executive Order 13211

    Executive Order 13211, ``Actions Concerning Regulations That 
Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use,'' 66 FR 28355 
(May 22, 2001), requires Federal agencies to prepare and submit to OMB, 
a Statement of Energy Effects for any significant energy action. A 
``significant energy action'' is defined as any action by an agency 
that promulgated or is expected to lead to promulgation of a final 
rule, and that (1) is a significant regulatory action under Executive 
Order 12866, or any successor order; and (2) is likely to have a 
significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of 
energy; or (3) is designated by the Administrator of OIRA as a 
significant energy action. For any significant energy action, the 
agency must give a detailed statement of any adverse effects on energy 
supply, distribution, or use if the regulation is implemented, and of 
reasonable alternatives to the action and their expected benefits on 
energy supply, distribution, and use.
    This regulatory action to adopt test procedures for certain 
categories of GSLs is not a significant regulatory action under 
Executive Order 12866. Moreover, it would not have a significant 
adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy, nor has 
it been designated as a significant energy action by the Administrator 
of OIRA. Therefore, it is not a significant energy action, and, 
accordingly, DOE has not prepared a Statement of Energy Effects.

L. Review Under Section 32 of the Federal Energy Administration Act of 
1974

    Under section 301 of the Department of Energy Organization Act 
(Pub. L. 95-91; 42 U.S.C. 7101), DOE must comply with section 32 of the 
Federal Energy Administration Act of 1974, as amended by the Federal 
Energy Administration Authorization Act of 1977. (15 U.S.C. 788; FEAA) 
Section 32 essentially provides in relevant part that, where a proposed 
rule authorizes or requires use of commercial standards, the notice of 
proposed rulemaking must inform the public of the use and background of 
such standards. In addition, section 32(c) requires DOE to consult with 
the Attorney General and the Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission 
(FTC) concerning the impact of the commercial or industry standards on 
competition.
    The test procedures for certain categories of GSLs adopted in this 
final rule incorporate test methods contained in certain sections of 
the following commercial standards:

    (1) IES LM-9-09, ``IES Approved Method for the Electrical and 
Photometric Measurement of Fluorescent Lamps,'' 2009;
    (2) IES LM-20-13, ``IES Approved Method for Photometry of 
Reflector Type Lamps,'' 2013;
    (3) IES LM-45-15, ``IES Approved Method for the Electrical and 
Photometric Measurement of General Service Incandescent Filament 
Lamps,'' 2015;
    (4) IES LM-79-08, ``Approved Method: Electrical and Photometric 
Measurements of Solid-State Lighting Products,'' 2008; and
    (5) IEC Standard 62301 (Edition 2.0), ``Household electrical 
appliances--Measurement of standby power,'' 2011.

    DOE has evaluated these standards and is unable to conclude whether 
they fully comply with the requirements of section 32(b) of the FEAA 
(i.e., that they were developed in a manner that fully provides for 
public participation, comment, and review.) DOE has consulted with both 
the Attorney General and the Chairman of the FTC about the impact on 
competition of using the methods contained in these standards and has 
received no comments objecting to their use.

8. Appendix DD to subpart B of part 430 is added to read as follows:

Appendix DD to Subpart B of Part 430--Uniform Test Method for Measuring 
the Energy Consumption and Energy Efficiency of General Service Lamps 
That Are Not General Service Incandescent Lamps, Compact Fluorescent 
Lamps, or Integrated LED Lamps.

    Note: On or after April 19, 2017, any representations, including 
certifications of compliance (if required), made with respect to the 
energy use or efficiency of general service lamps that are not 
general service incandescent lamps, compact fluorescent lamps, or 
integrated LED lamps must be made in accordance with the results of 
testing pursuant to this appendix DD.

    1. Scope: This appendix DD specifies the test methods required 
to measure the initial lumen output, input power, lamp efficacy, 
power factor, and standby mode energy consumption of general service 
lamps that are not general service incandescent lamps,

[[Page 72505]]

compact fluorescent lamps, or integrated LED lamps.
    2. Definitions:
    Measured initial input power means the input power to the lamp, 
measured after the lamp is stabilized and seasoned (if applicable), 
and expressed in watts (W).
    Measured initial lumen output means the lumen output of the 
lamp, measured after the lamp is stabilized and seasoned (if 
applicable), and expressed in lumens (lm).
    Power factor means the measured initial input power (watts) 
divided by the product of the input voltage (volts) and the input 
current (amps) measured at the same time as the initial input power.
    3. Active Mode Test Procedures
    3.1. Take measurements at full light output.
    3.2. Do not use a goniophotometer.
    3.3. For single base OLED and non-integrated LED lamps, position 
a lamp in either the base-up and base-down orientation throughout 
testing. Test an equal number of lamps in the sample in the base-up 
and base-down orientations, except that, if the manufacturer 
restricts the orientation, test all of the units in the sample in 
the manufacturer-specified orientation. For double base OLED and 
non-integrated LED lamps, test all units in the horizontal 
orientation except that, if the manufacturer restricts the 
orientation, test all of the units in the sample in the 
manufacturer-specified orientation.
    3.4. Operate the lamp at the rated voltage throughout testing. 
For lamps with multiple rated voltages including 120 volts, operate 
the lamp at 120 volts. If a lamp is not rated for 120 volts, operate 
the lamp at the highest rated input voltage. For non-integrated LED 
lamps, operate the lamp at the manufacturer-declared input voltage 
and current.
    3.5. Operate the lamp at the maximum input power. If multiple 
modes occur at the same maximum input power (such as variable CCT or 
CRI), the manufacturer may select any of these modes for testing; 
however, all measurements must be taken at the same selected mode. 
The manufacturer must indicate in the test report which mode was 
selected for testing and include detail such that another laboratory 
could operate the lamp in the same mode.
    3.6. To measure initial lumen output, input power, input 
voltage, and input current use the test procedures in the table in 
this section.

    3.7. Determine initial lamp efficacy by dividing the measured 
initial lumen output (lumens) by the measured initial input power 
(watts).
    3.8. Determine power factor by dividing the measured initial 
input power (watts) by the product of the measured input voltage 
(volts) and measured input current (amps).
    4. Standby Mode Test Procedure
    4.1. Measure standby mode power only for lamps that are capable 
of standby mode operation.
    4.2. Maintain lamp orientation as specified in section 3.3 of 
this appendix.
    4.3. Connect the lamp to the manufacturer-specified wireless 
control network (if applicable) and configure the lamp in standby 
mode by sending a signal to the lamp instructing it to have zero 
light output. Lamp must remain connected to the network throughout 
testing.
    4.4. Operate the lamp at the rated voltage throughout testing. 
For lamps with multiple rated voltages including 120 volts, operate 
the lamp at 120 volts. If a lamp is not rated for 120 volts, operate 
the lamp at the highest rated input voltage.
    4.5. Stabilize the lamp prior to measurement as specified in 
section 5 of IEC 62301-DD (incorporated by reference; see Sec.  
430.3).
    4.6. Measure the standby mode power in watts as specified in 
section 5 of IEC 62301-DD (incorporated by reference; see Sec.  
430.3).
