SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On February 12, 2014, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a request for information (RFI) and notice of document availability document in the Federal Register (79 FR 8337) initiating the rulemaking and data collection process to consider new and amended energy conservation standards for products included in the definition of conventional cooking products. The RFI requested public comment from interested parties regarding specific as well as general questions and provided for the submission of comments by March 14, 2014. Thereafter, the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) requested that DOE extend the comment period by 30 days. AHAM stated that the additional time is necessary in order to allow for review of and substantive comment on the significant questions to which DOE is seeking response.

Based on AHAM'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 April 14, 2014 to provide interested parties additional time to prepare and submit comments. Accordingly, DOE will consider any comments received by April 14, 2014 to be timely submitted.
