Conservation Standards Enforcement Office of the General Counsel
You are here
The Office of the Assistant General Counsel for Enforcement ensures that manufacturers (including importers) of consumer products and industrial equipment meet the nation’s energy and water conservation standards. These efforts save money for consumers and ensure that products deliver on efficiency claims. Strong enforcement of the rules encourages compliance and keeps manufacturers who break the law from having a competitive advantage over manufacturers who play by the rules.
