Proposed Rule Extending the Effective Date For the New Lamp Requirements in the Appliance Labeling Rule, FTC Rule No. R611004

Hello, We feel that it's a good idea to postpone the deadline for implementing the Lighting Facts label until 1st January 2012. This gives the manufacturer the time needed for implementing and manage the problems in supply chain. However we don't feel that it's in the customer’s best interest to exempt low performing bulbs from the marking requirement. The extra time for implementing the label and requirement for manufacturers to mark even the low performing incandescent bulbs give good incentive for speeding up the phase-out (prior to deadline).
