The EPA reminded all ENERGY STAR manufacturing partners about the required annual report of their qualified product unit shipment data. EPA collects unit shipment data to determine the market penetration of the ENERGY STAR products to evaluate the program’s performance. The data collection deadline is March 31 of each year. Failure to submit unit shipment data before the March 31 deadline will result in the termination of your ENERGY STAR partnership and the removal of all products from the ENERGY STAR Web site.
In January, the EPA will send all partner’s primary contacts a data collection letter and product submittal form. The letter will outline the data submittal requirements and process. All letters and forms are also available to view and download online.
