The Energy Policy and Conservation Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 6291–6309 (EPCA) establishes energy conservation or water use standards and test procedures for certain consumer products, including water closets. Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 430 (10 CFR 430), defines the term “water closet” to mean a plumbing fixture that has a water-containing receptor which receives liquid and solid body waste, and upon actuation, conveys the waste through and exposed integral trap seal into a gravity drainage system, except such term does not include fixtures designed for installation in prisons. (10 CFR 430.2) The Department of Energy (DOE) last amended the test procedures for water closets on September 30, 2013. Under the provisions of 42 U.S.C. 6295(k)(3), the water use standards for water closets have not been amended.
