About the Changes to the ENERGY STAR® Program  

EPA and DOE have announced enhancement of product qualification and verification to the ENERGY STAR® Program (Source: Since January 2011, prior to ENERGY STAR® labeling, all ENERGY STAR® Partners are required to have third-party ENERGY STAR® certification of product performance. Partners also have to submit products to the respective products' EPA Recognized Certification Body for on-going verification testing in order to ensure the labeled products' continuity in meeting ENERGY STAR® requirements.
