The free service from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) establishes a qualified product exchange (QPX) system to accept requests for EnergyStar certification and facilitate processing of those requests by certification bodies (CBs). The service augments prior systems, which were based on submission of spreadsheets listing all currently certified products. It handles XML submissions for individual products, including capabilities to modify certification requests after submission.
API methods support submission of EnergyStar certification requests for products like boilers, air conditioners and heat pumps, dehumidifiers, commercial fryers and griddles, and electronic equipment. Methods also support modifying, withdrawing, and re-submitting existing certifications.
