The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is making changes to its Energy Star program to address the potential for fraud and abuse, and a major component of the change is increased verification of Energy Star compliance through third party testing. Certification agency Intertek is pledging to support all stakeholders and make the transition a smooth one.

The added verification initiatives come after several high-profile conflicts with manufacturers, including appliance OEMs, who the EPA felt were using the Energy Star logo without having satisfied program standards.

The EPA's Energy Star Enhanced Testing and Verification presentation lays out its proposed guidelines. Download a PDF of the document at:
