In 2010, the EPA and DOE announced joint updates to the Energy Star certification program, which are aimed at improving “verification, testing and enforcement.” The main changes, put in effect in April 2010, include:
1) companies must submit product lab reports and results to the EPA before labelling, to obtain approval, and these tests must take place in an approved, accredited lab2) the implementation of an individual approval process (replacing the automated system of the past) by the EPA3) companies must have a specific Energy Star product approved by the EPA before they can access the Energy Star certification mark (as program partners)
For more information and specifics, you can check out the Energy Star website or this news release from the EPA.
