After releasing Version 3.0 Energy Star specifications for commercial ovens in April, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is reminding stakeholders it will take effect on Jan. 12.

Commercial oven products manufactured as of Jan. 12 must meet Version 3.0 requirements to bear the Energy Star mark. All certifications of products to the Version 2.2 specification will be invalid, and certification bodies only can submit product models certified to Version 3.0 to EPA.
