The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has published a final rule amending test procedures for automatic commercial ice makers, effective Dec. 1.

The rule includes updates to the latest industry standards; changes to improve test procedure representativeness, accuracy and precision; specifying certain test settings, conditions and installations; and enforcement provisions.

“DOE has determined that while the amendments will introduce additional test requirements compared to the current approach, any impact to the measured efficiency of certified [automatic commercial ice makers] is expected to be de minimis,” says the DOE in the final rule.

The changes will become mandatory for equipment testing starting Oct. 27, 2023.
