Hicon: Proposed Penalty (2013-SE-1426)

July 8, 2013

DOE alleged in a Notice of Proposed Civil Penalty that Ningbo Hicon International Industry Company, Ltd. manufactured and distributed noncompliant freezer basic model BD-200 in the U.S.  Federal law subjects manufacturers and private labelers to civil penalties if those parties distribute in the U.S. products that do not meet applicable energy conservation standards.  This civil penalty notice advises the company of the potential penalties and DOE's administrative process, including the company's right to a hearing.
