Fujitsu: Order (2015-CE-16014)

October 27, 2015

DOE ordered Fujitsu General America, Inc. to pay a $8,000 civil penalty after finding Fujitsu had failed to certify that certain models of central air conditioners and heat pumps comply with the applicable energy conservation standards prior to distributing them in commerce.  The Order adopted a Compromise Agreement, which reflected settlement terms between DOE and Fujitsu.

DOE regulations require a manufacturer (which includes importers) to submit reports certifying that its products have been tested and meet the applicable energy conservation standards.  DOE issued a civil penalty notice on September 29, 2015, advising the company of the potential penalties and DOE's administrative process, including the company's right to a hearing.
