The Department of Energy (DOE) has submitted the proposed collection of information described in this Notice to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval, in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub.

On December 13, 1999, DOE published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that calls for regulations to implement standards and test procedures for commercial heating and air-conditioning equipment (64 FR 69598). The proposed rule contained collections of information required for manufacturers' certification to DOE that their products comply with the applicable energy efficiency standards. OMB is particularly interested in receiving public comments that evaluate: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary, (2) The accuracy of DOE's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection, (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected, and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who choose to respond.
Comments regarding this collection must be received on or before December 14, 2001. If you anticipate that you will be submitting comments, but find it difficult to do so within the period of time allowed by this notice, please advise the OMB Desk Officer of your intention to make a submission as soon as possible.
