Simkar: Proposed Penalty (2012-SE-5408)

November 21, 2012

DOE alleged in a Notice of Proposed Civil Penalty that Simkar Corporation manufactured and distributed noncompliant probe-start and pulse-start basic model metal halide lamp fixtures 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.
