Energy Lighting Effective Date of Labeling
In its NPRM, the Commission did not propose an effective date for the new labeling requirements. Rather, the Commission sought comment on when the new requirements should become effective.
Comments: NEMA stated that the amendments should allow manufacturers to implement labeling changes on a rolling basis over one to two years. Vranich noted that the longer the implementation period, the more manufacturers can mitigate costs by phasing in new labeling when they make package changes in the normal course of business.
Discussion: The Commission sets the effective date for the labeling requirements one year after issuance of this document. This one-year period should provide manufacturers with adequate time to redesign labels and packaging, as well as to reduce package inventory.
The Commission provided manufacturers with the same one-year period when it last amended the labeling requirements in 1994, without any discernible problem.
The Commission encourages manufacturers to begin using the new label before the effective date, if possible.
