(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 efficiency standard and 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 provided for in the energy efficiency standard 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.

2. A reference to an energy efficiency standard is a reference to the version listed in Schedule 1, including all subsequent modifications made to the standard.
434-2017O.C. 434-2017, s. 2.
3. An appliance listed in Schedule 1 must be provided with an energy efficiency verification mark issued by a certification body accredited by the Standards Council of Canada, in the energy efficiency verification field. The energy efficiency verification mark certifies that the appliance has been tested and its energy performance has been verified.
In the case of a general service fluorescent lamp, a general service incandescent reflector lamp or a general service lamp, the energy verification mark may be affixed on the exterior of their package.
434-2017O.C. 434-2017, s. 3.
4. An appliance listed in Schedule 1 must be provided with at least one permanent label bearing its model number and its date of manufacturing or bearing a code identifying that date.
Where, for the purposes of section 24 of the Act respecting energy efficiency and energy conservation standards for certain electrical or hydrocarbon-fuelled appliances (chapter N-1.01), the Minister permits a manufacturer to apply to an appliance or a category of appliances energy efficiency standards different from those set out in Schedule 1, the appliance must be provided with a permanent label obtained from the Minister certifying that it meets Québec’s energy performance requirement.
434-2017O.C. 434-2017, s. 4.
5. A label or a mark provided for in sections 3 and 4 must be affixed so that it is easily located and read without having to disassemble a part of the appliance.
434-2017O.C. 434-2017, s. 5.
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 keeps up to date a register containing at least
(1)  the name of the certification body referred to in section 3;
(2)  the number of the appliance energy performance verification file;
(3)  all information allowing to show the compliance of the appliance with the applicable energy efficiency standard and the energy performance requirement according to the test procedure provided for in the energy efficiency standard specified in Schedule 1.
434-2017O.C. 434-2017, s. 7.
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).
