Is there a grace period for manufacturers to promote products as ENERGY STAR certified after a criteria revision renders them unqualified? Follow

When the technical requirements for a given type of ENERGY STAR product are revised, there is a transition period during which models not meeting the new specification remain ENERGY STAR products. At the end of the transition period, the new specification becomes effective, and older products bearing the label should no longer be actively promoted as ENERGY STAR, either online or in store.

Consumers should keep in mind that some products may have a permanent ENERGY STAR mark etched on the front or on top of the product. To ensure that a product is currently listed as an ENERGY STAR certified model, we recommend reviewing the ENERGY STAR certified products lists.
