AHAM Launches Verification Program
The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) said Tuesday that it is launching an independent verification program which will confirm refrigerator and freezer internal volume and energy usage claims made by both manufacturers and brand owners.
The program, known as the Refrigerator, Refrigerator-Freezer and Freezer Verification Program, will also assist the federal Energy Star program.
“Independent testing programs, such as AHAM’s, demonstrate that appliance manufacturers are concerned about consumers trust and are willing to prove their energy claim," the Department of Energy's general counsel, Scott Blake Harris, said in a statement. We hope other industries will consider such programs.”
