FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION

16 CFR Part 305

RIN 3084-AB03


Energy Labeling Rule

AGENCY: Federal Trade Commission.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Trade Commission (``Commission'') is correcting a 
final rule published in the Federal Register of August 12, 2014, which 
amends the Energy Labeling Rule by updating comparability ranges for 
certain heating and cooling products and making conforming changes to 
the Rule's sample labels.

DATES: Effective Date: September 4, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hampton Newsome, Attorney, Division of 
Enforcement, Bureau of Consumer Protection, Federal Trade Commission, 
Washington, DC 20580; (202) 326-2889.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This document corrects tables and sample 
labels for central air conditioners in the August 12, 2014, final rule 
document (79 FR 46985) amending the Energy Labeling Rule (``Rule''), 16 
CFR part 305. Specifically, this document corrects the lower range 
numbers for several central air conditioner categories to reflect new 
DOE minimum conservation standards scheduled for January 1, 2015, adds 
range numbers for space-constrained and small-duct, high-velocity 
product categories omitted from the tables in the final rule 
document,\1\ and makes conforming corrections to the range numbers on 
the sample labels.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In a January 25, 2013 final rule document (78 FR 8362), the 
Commission announced that it would add ranges to the Rule for space-
constrained products and small-duct, high-velocity systems.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In FR Doc. 2014-18501, appearing in the Federal Register of 
Tuesday, August 12, 2014 (79 FR 46985), the following corrections are 
made:
