Partnering to Meet Regulatory Requirements

We continuously take steps to ensure compliance with all Department of Energy (DOE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards and rules. Every six years the DOE reviews the conservation standards which impact Hussmann products. Currently, display cases are manufactured to be compliant with the March 2017 DOE compliance date. Walk-in cooler/freezer components (WICF) have compliance dates of June 2017 for doors and 2020 for refrigeration. Hussmann and CRD WICF doors manufactured today are compliant with the most recent federal standards (June 2017). 


The EPA has finalized a rule under its Technology Transitions Program that restricts the use of certain high Global Warming Potential (GWP) Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants in new products and systems manufactured, imported, or installed after the compliance date for each subsector listed in the rule. The first restrictions begin January 1, 2025.  For more information, see Hussmann’s one-page summary sheet on the rule here.


New store installations with refrigerated systems in California beginning 1/1/2022 must not exceed 50 lb. of charge if they use a refrigerant with a GWP between 150 and 2,200.  Systems with greater than 50 lb. charge require refrigerants below 150 GWP. Existing store compliance for CA requires a weighted average GWP of refrigerants used to be less than 1,400 GWP for the fleet by 2030 or a 55% reduction of overall Greenhouse Gas Potential (GHGP) compared to a 2019 baseline.
