SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On January 10, 2018, the Appliance Standards and Rulemaking Federal Advisory Committee (ASRAC) met and passed the recommendation to form a VRF multi-split systems working group to meet and discuss and, if possible, reach a consensus on proposed Federal test procedures and energy conservation standards for VRF multi-split systems. On April 11, 2018, DOE published a notice of intent to establish a working group for VRF multi-split systems to negotiate a notice of proposed rulemaking for test procedures and energy conservations standards. The notice also solicited nominations for membership to the working group. 83 FR 15514.

On August 22, 2019, DOE published a notice announcing public meetings for the VRF working group. 84 FR 43731. On October 24, 2019, DOE published another notice announcing new public meetings/webinars and modifying the dates for the previously scheduled public meetings/webinars for the VRF working group. 84 FR 56949.

On October 1, 2019, the VRF working group voted to approve a test procedure term sheet for VRF equipment. On November 5, 2019, the VRF working group voted to approve an energy conservation standards term sheet for VRF equipment. The working group has concluded its work, and, therefore, no further public meetings are necessary. Accordingly, this notice cancels the remaining public meetings/webinars for the VRF multi-split systems working group announced in the Federal Register on October 24, 2019. 84 FR 56949.
