March 31, 2017

DOE ordered Hisense USA Corporation to pay a $8,000 civil penalty after finding Hisense had failed to certify that Whirlpool brand model AD50GUSB dehumidifiers, which it manufacturers, comply with the applicable energy conservation standards. The Order adopted a Compromise Agreement, which reflected settlement terms between DOE and Hisense.

DOE alleged in a March 10, 2017 Notice of Proposed Civil Penalty that Hisense had failed to certify Whirlpool brand model AD50GUSB dehumidifiers, which it manufacturers, as compliant with the applicable energy conservation standards. 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. The civil penalty notice advised the company of the potential penalties and DOE's administrative process, including the company's right to a hearing.
