Marginal note:Energy-using product
  •  (1) A torchiere is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 509, a torchiere is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after January 1, 2007.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards
  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 2 of the table to this section apply to torchieres described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 3.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A torchiere complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by CSA C22.2 No. 250.4 that are applicable to a torchiere as defined in section 507.
