The Department of Energy (DOE) has published a Federal Register notice (81 FR 57745, August 24, 2016) granting in part and denying in part a series of petitions to amend a recently published rule that established a procedure through which a party can, within a prescribed period after DOE posts a rule establishing or amending an energy conservation standard, identify a possible error in such a rule and request that DOE correct the error before the rule is published in the Federal Register  ("error correction rule"). DOE provided an opportunity for the public to comment on these petitions.

  • This document responds to both the petitions and related comments that were submitted and received in accordance with the timelines established in a prior Federal Register notice inviting such petitions and comments.
  • This partial grant and partial denial is effective September 23, 2016.
  • All petitions and comments filed in accordance with the timelines set forth in the prior Federal Register notice can be found in the rulemaking docket EERE-2016-BT-PET-0016.
