US FTC Proposes Changes To Ceiling Fan Labels And Decides Against Changing Lamp Labels

On January 16, 2024, The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) proposing to amend the content of the Energy Guide Label for ceiling fans. The proposal calls for updating the energy cost information and product comparability range. The proposal would also establish a five-year schedule for regularly updating the energy cost and range information.

Within the same NPRM proposal, FTC decided against revising lamp Lighting Fact Label requirements. FTC also decided against extending Lighting Facts labeling to 25W incandescent lamps and color-tunable lamps. Other decisions in the January NPRM include:

  • Not changing lamp reporting requirements through the DOE CCMS system.
  • Not adding bilingual label requirements
  • Not updating energy cost values on lamp Lighting Facts labels

The FTC is seeking stakeholders’ comments on the NPRM. The full text of the January NPRM is available here.
