Act respecting energy efficiency and energy conservation standards for certain electrical or hydrocarbon-fuelled appliances
(chapter N-1.01, ss. 21, 22, 23 and 26).
N-1.01
May 3 2017August 15 2017
1. An appliance listed in Schedule 1, whose manufacturing ends during the period determined in that Schedule, must comply with the energy performance requirement provided for each appliance in Schedule 1.
The compliance of an appliance is tested and verified according to the applicable test procedure specified in Schedule 1 and according to any specification in Schedule 1.
Where a standard listed in Schedule 1 states that it is based on or harmonized with another standard, the test procedure of the latter standard may be used to test and verify the compliance of the appliance.

1.1. An appliance listed in Schedule 2, as defined in the Energy Efficiency Regulations, 2016 (SOR/2016-311), must comply with the energy efficiency standards applicable to the appliance in accordance with the Regulation, based on the period during which its manufacturing is completed.
An appliance is covered only to the extent that, within the meaning of the Regulation, it is considered as an energy-using product and is not otherwise excluded by an applicable restriction.
Compliance of an appliance is tested and verified using the applicable testing methods or standards specified in the Regulation.
1394-2018O.C. 1394-2018, s. 2.
2. A reference to another text includes subsequent amendments made thereto.
434-2017O.C. 434-2017, s. 2; 1394-2018O.C. 1394-2018, s. 3.
3. An appliance listed in Schedule 1 or 2 must be labelled with an energy efficiency verification mark issued by a body accredited by the Standards Council of Canada to operate a certification program in respect of energy efficiency. The verification mark certifies that the appliance has been tested and that, as the case may, its energy performance or compliance with the applicable energy efficiency standards have been verified.
For the purposes of the first paragraph, an external power supply may be marked with roman numerals authorized by an accredited body.
434-2017O.C. 434-2017, s. 3; 1394-2018O.C. 1394-2018, s. 3.
4. An appliance listed in Schedule 1 or 2 must be provided with at least one permanent label bearing the identification of its manufacturer, its model number and its date of manufacturing or bearing a code identifying that date, such as the appliance’s serial number.
An appliance referred to in section 24 of the Act respecting energy efficiency and energy conservation standards for certain electrical or hydrocarbon-fuelled appliances (chapter N-1.01) must be provided with a permanent label obtained from the Minister certifying that it is demonstrated that the energy consumption equal to or lower than that permitted by regulation results from the various authorized standards.
434-2017O.C. 434-2017, s. 4; 1394-2018O.C. 1394-2018, s. 3.

6. The special stamp that an inspector may affix in the cases referred to in section 32 of the Act respecting energy efficiency and energy conservation standards for certain electrical or hydrocarbon-fuelled appliances (chapter N-1.01) is a red-coloured self-adhesive stamp containing a text indicating that the appliance cannot be marketed in Québec and the amount of the fines applicable if the stamp is removed. The stamp must be affixed on the exterior of an appliance package.
434-2017O.C. 434-2017, s. 6.
7. A manufacturer of appliances listed in Schedule 1 or 2 keeps up to date a register containing at least the name of the certification body referred to in section 3.
The register must also contain
(1)  in the case of an appliance listed in Schedule 1, the number of the appliance energy performance verification file and all information allowing to show the compliance of the appliance with the applicable energy performance requirement according to the testing procedure provided for in Schedule 1;
(2)  in the case of an appliance listed in Schedule 2, the number of the appliance compliance verification file with the applicable energy efficiency standards and all information allowing to show the compliance of the appliance with the energy efficiency standards according to the applicable testing methods.
434-2017O.C. 434-2017, s. 7; 1394-2018O.C. 1394-2018, s. 5.
8. Attestations of the verification of the energy performance of appliances issued by the Canadian Standards Association, Warnock Hersey Professional Services Ltd., Underwriters Laboratories Inc. and the Canadian Gas Association before 15 August 2017 in accordance with the Regulation respecting the energy efficiency of electrical or hydrocarbon-fuelled appliances (chapter E-1.2, r. 1), retain their full validity under this Regulation.
434-2017O.C. 434-2017, s. 8.
9. This Regulation replaces the Regulation respecting the energy efficiency of electrical or hydrocarbon-fuelled appliances (chapter E-1.2, r. 1).
