California Energy Commission (CEC) Testing
F2 Labs is approved by the California Energy Commission to provide California Energy Commission (CEC) testing services for Compact Audio Devices, Small Battery Charger Systems, External Power Supplies, and Large Battery Charger Systems.
On June 20, 2007, the 2007 Appliance Efficiency Regulations were adopted by the California Energy Commission and approved by the California Office of Administrative Law. These are mandatory regulations that include standards for appliances that are, and are not, federally regulated.
The standards within the regulations are applicable to appliances sold or offered for sale in the state of California, except those sold wholesale in California for final retail sale outside the state, and those designed and sold exclusively for use in recreational vehicles or other mobile equipment.
F2 Labs’ expert staff can provide manufactures with the California Energy Commission (CEC) testing they need to ensure their product meets the necessary energy efficiency standards.
