Amending O. Reg. 404/12

(ENERGY EFFICIENCY — APPLIANCES AND PRODUCTS)

1. (1) Subsection 2 (1) of Ontario Regulation 404/12 is amended by striking out “clause 15 (1) (a)” and substituting “section 15”.

(2) Subsections 2 (1.1) and (1.2) of the Regulation are revoked.

2. The Regulation is amended by adding the following sections:

Rolling incorporation of a foreign regulation that is revoked

2.1 If a standard or requirement set out in section 1 of a Schedule to this Regulation incorporates by reference a provision of a regulation from a jurisdiction outside Canada as it reads on the date the particular appliance or product is manufactured and the incorporated provision is revoked and not replaced by the date the appliance or product is manufactured, the provision as it read immediately before it was revoked continues to have effect for the purposes of this Regulation.

Early compliance

2.2 (1) Despite section 2, for the purposes of section 15 of the Act, a person may apply a testing standard or an efficiency standard or requirement set out in section 1 of the applicable Schedule to this Regulation that would apply to an appliance or product if it were manufactured on a future date if the person complies with the following rules:

1. The person shall select a notional future date and apply both the testing standard and the efficiency standard or requirement set out in section 1 of the applicable Schedule to this Regulation that would apply if the appliance or product were manufactured on the notional future date.

2. If a testing standard or an efficiency standard or requirement set out in section 1 of a Schedule to this Regulation incorporates a document by reference as of a fixed date, the person shall,

i. use the version of the incorporated document as it reads on the fixed date, and

ii. apply the testing standard or the efficiency standard or requirement set out in the incorporated document that would apply if the appliance or product were manufactured on the notional future date referred to in paragraph 1.

3. If a testing standard or an efficiency standard or requirement set out in section 1 of a Schedule to this Regulation incorporates by reference a document as it reads on the date the particular appliance or product is manufactured the person shall,

i. use the version of the incorporated document that is in effect on the actual date the particular product or appliance is manufactured, and

ii. apply the testing standard or the efficiency standard or requirement set out in the incorporated standard that would apply if the appliance or product were manufactured on the notional future date referred to in paragraph 1.

(2) For greater certainty, early compliance under subsection (1) is not permitted if,

(a) section 1 of the applicable Schedule to this Regulation does not provide for a testing standard and an efficiency standard or requirement that would apply to the particular appliance or product on the notional future date selected under paragraph 1 of subsection (1); or

(b) an incorporated document does not set out either a testing standard or an efficiency standard or requirement that would apply to the particular appliance or product on the notional future date or the actual date, as the case may be.

3. Subsection 4 (1) of the Regulation is revoked and replaced with the following:

4. (1) A prescribed label referred to in clause 15 (1) (b) of the Act for an appliance or product must consist of either a label containing the registered trademark or symbol of an organization designated in subsection 3 (2) or (3), as applicable, or a label in the form provided by the Ministry.

4. Subparagraph 9.1 ii of section 1 of Schedule 1 to the Regulation is amended by striking out “as they read on the date of manufacture” at the end and substituting “as they read on the date the particular appliance or product is manufactured”.

5. (1) Paragraphs 4 to 7 of section 1 of Schedule 5 to the Regulation are revoked and the following substituted:
