  •  (1) A battery charger is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 592, a battery charger is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after June 13, 2019.

  • SOR/2018-201, s. 66

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standard

  •  (1) A battery charger must have a unit energy consumption that is less than or equal to that set out for the battery charger’s product class in Table C.1 of CSA C381.2-17.

  • Marginal note:Testing standards

    (2) A battery charger complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with the testing procedures established by CSA C381.2-17 or 10 C.F.R. Appendix Y that are applicable to a battery charger as defined in section 590.

  • SOR/2018-201, s. 66

 For the purpose of subsection 5(1) of the Act, the following information must be collected in accordance with CSA C381.2-17 or 10 C.F.R. Appendix Y and provided to the Minister in respect of a battery charger:

  • (a) its product class;

  • (b) its rated battery energy (Ebatt), expressed in watt-hours;

  • (c) its unit energy consumption, expressed in kilowatt-hours per year;

  • (d) its power, expressed in watts, when it is in active mode, maintenance mode and standby mode, respectively; and

  • (e) if an external power supply was used to test the battery charger, the power supply’s model number and the name of its manufacturer.

Interpretation

Marginal note:Definition of Edaily

 In this Division, Edaily means the daily energy consumption of a product, expressed in kilowatt hours per day.

SUBDIVISION ACommercial Refrigerators, Refrigerator-Freezers and Freezers

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

AV

AV means, in respect of a commercial refrigerator-freezer, its adjusted volume in litres, which is the sum of the refrigerator volume and 1.63 times the freezer volume. (VC)

closed

closed means

  • (a) in respect of a refrigerated compartment of a commercial refrigerator, commercial refrigerator-freezer or commercial freezer, that all its points of access can be closed off from the outside by a physical barrier and from which any refrigerated item can be accessed by opening a door or drawer; and

  • (b) in respect of a commercial refrigerator, commercial refrigerator-freezer or commercial freezer, that all of its compartments are as described in paragraph (a). (type fermé)

commercial freezer

commercial freezer means a freezer that is self-contained or remote-condensing, that uses or is designed to be used with a vapour-compression refrigeration system and whose compartments are all designed for the freezing and display or storage of food, beverages or ice at temperatures below 0°C. It does not include a household freezer or walk-in freezer. (congélateur commercial)

commercial refrigerator

commercial refrigerator means a refrigerator that is self-contained or remote-condensing, that uses or is designed to be used with a vapour-compression refrigeration system and whose compartments are all designed for the display or storage of food, beverages or flowers at temperatures at or above 0°C. It does not include a household refrigerator, refrigerated buffet table, refrigerated preparation table or walk-in cooler. (réfrigérateur commercial)

commercial refrigerator-freezer

commercial refrigerator-freezer means a refrigerator-freezer that is self-contained or remote-condensing, that uses or is designed to be used with a vapour-compression refrigeration system and that has two or more compartments, at least one of which is designed for the display or storage of food and beverages at temperatures at or above 0°C and at least one of which is designed for the freezing and display or storage of food and beverages at temperatures below 0°C. It does not include a household refrigerator-freezer, walk-in freezer or walk-in cooler. (réfrigérateur-congélateur commercial)

CSA C657

CSA C657 means the CSA standard CSA C657-2015 entitled Energy Performance Standard for Commercial Refrigeration Equipment. (CSA C657)

ice cream freezer

ice cream freezer means a commercial freezer that is designed to operate at temperatures at or below –21°C ± 1.1°C and that is designed or marketed for the storage, display or dispensing of ice cream. (congélateur de crème glacée)

open

open means, in respect of a commercial refrigerator, commercial refrigerator-freezer or commercial freezer — or a refrigerated compartment of one — that it is not closed. (type ouvert)

pull-down temperature reduction capability

pull-down temperature reduction capability means the capability of a commercial refrigerator, when it is situated in an area that has an ambient temperature of 32.22˚C and when it is fully loaded with 355 mL beverage cans that are at a temperature of 32.22˚C at the time of loading, to cool those cans to an average stable temperature of 3.33˚C in 12 hours or less. (capacité d’abaisser la température)

TDA

TDA means the total display area of a product, expressed in square metres. (TDA)

transparent

transparent means

  • (a) in respect of a refrigerated compartment of a commercial refrigerator, commercial refrigerator-freezer or commercial freezer, that it is closed and has a TDA that is at least 75% of the geometrically projected area of the refrigerated space on the plane of the face with the largest access space; and

  • (b) in respect of a commercial refrigerator, commercial refrigerator-freezer or commercial freezer, that all of its compartments are as described in paragraph (a). (transparent)

V

V means, in respect of a refrigerated compartment of a commercial refrigerator, commercial refrigerator-freezer or commercial freezer, its volume, expressed in litres, calculated in accordance with clause 8 of CSA C657. (V)
