(2)Products for which Oregon minimum energy efficiency standards are not identical to standards adopted in California, or that have not been approved by the California Energy Commission, must be approved by the Oregon Department of Energy and will be designated in the M-SCS database as “Needing Attestation” until they are approved.
(3)Products which do not comply with the appliance efficiency standards set forth in ORS 469.233 (Energy efficiency standards) will be designated in the M-SCS database as “Non-Compliant.”
