The Federal Trade Commission proposed amendments to improve the Appliance Labeling Rule in the March 15, 2012 Federal Register.

The FTC proposed changes to the Appliance Labeling Rule intended to streamline requirements for appliance manufacturers, increasing the availability of labels for consumers, and clarifying parts of the rule.

The proposed amendments would seek to:
* eliminate duplicative reporting requirements for manufacturers
* introduce a uniform method for attaching labels to appliances
* place EnergyGuide labels on room air-conditioner boxes instead of on the products themselves
* improve current Web site disclosures
* revise ceiling fan labels

The proposed amendments would also seek to clarify enforcement rules for data reporting, testing access, and Web site disclosures.

The FTC is requesting comments on the proposed changes, on the rule's overall costs and benefits, and on its overall regulatory and economic impact. Written comments must be received by May 16, 2012.

The complete notice and instructions for submitting comments are at:
