SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On December 9, 2013, DOE published a notice of public meeting and availability of framework document in the Federal Register (78 FR 73737) initiating the rulemaking and data collection process to consider new and amended energy conservation standards for products included in the definition of GSLs. The notice provided for the submission of public comments by January 23, 2014. National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has requested a 2-week extension of the comment period, stating that it needs additional time to fully evaluate the framework document, its scope and definitions.

Based on NEMA's request, DOE believes that extending the comment period to allow additional time for interested parties to submit comments is appropriate. Therefore, DOE is extending the comment period until February 7, 2014 to provide interested parties additional time to prepare and submit comments. Accordingly, DOE will consider any comments received by February 7, 2014 to be timely submitted.
