Commercial Refrigerator-Freezers

Marginal note:Energy-using product

  •  (1) A commercial refrigerator-freezer is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limits

    (2) However, a commercial refrigerator-freezer is not considered to be an energy-using product

    • (a) for the purposes of sections 4 and 5, unless

      • (i) it is self-contained, is closed and is manufactured on or after April 1, 2007,

      • (ii) it is self-contained, is open and is manufactured on or after January 1, 2012, or
