SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, DOE is publishing four separate documents (“ECS documents”) that establish or amend the energy conservation standards for commercial packaged boilers, portable air conditioners, industrial air compressors, and uninterruptible power supplies. These four documents are being published to comply with an order from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in the consolidated cases of Natural Resources Defense Council, et al. v. Perry and People of the State of California et al. v. Perry, Case No. 17-cv-03404-VC. This order was affirmed by the Ninth Circuit in a subsequent appeal, Case Nos. 18-15380 and 18-15475, and, accordingly, DOE is publishing these documents pursuant to the District Court's order.

Pursuant to this order, DOE submitted the documents, as originally signed and dated in 2016. By publishing this final action, DOE reaffirms the validity of the original signatures on the ECS documents under 1 CFR 18.1 and 18.7.

Each of the ECS documents is substantively identical to the documents previously posted to DOE's website. However, consistent with the normal publication process, each document has been reviewed and edited to ensure that the requirements set out by the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (1 CFR chapter I) and the Office of the Federal Register (Document Drafting Handbook, www.archives.gov/​federal-register/​write/​handbook/​ddh/​pdf) regarding formatting and organizational structure have been satisfied.
