Reminder: HRAI Seeking Member Input on testing and efficiency standards for various A/C & Heat Pump

In April 2022, Natural Resources Canada announced its intent to launch Amendments 18 and 19 to Canada’s Energy Efficiency Regulations.  The amendments will update testing procedures and/or energy efficiency standards for 19 currently regulated products and will introduce requirements for seven new products.

The exact date for final publication of the amendments in Canada Gazette, Part II will depend on the number and nature of comments received during the public comment periods, but are typically within a year of the initial public comment period.

Comments are due September 15, 2022. After that date, HRAI will make a formal submission to NRCan on the proposed amendments to Canada’s Energy Efficiency Regulations.

To provide your input or if you would like more information about Amendments 18 and 19, please contact Stephen Chartrand at 1-800-267-2231 ext. 276, or email
