Early compliance

4. (1) Despite section 2, for the purposes of section 25.35.7 of the Act, a person may apply a testing standard or an efficiency standard or requirement set out in section 1 of the applicable Schedule to this Regulation that would apply to an appliance or product if it were manufactured on a future date if the person complies with the following rules:

1. The person shall select a notional future date and apply both the testing standard and the efficiency standard or requirement set out in section 1 of the applicable Schedule to this Regulation that would apply if the appliance or product were manufactured on the notional future date.

2. If a testing standard or an efficiency standard or requirement set out in section 1 of a Schedule to this Regulation incorporates a document by reference as of a fixed date, the person shall,

i. use the version of the incorporated document as it reads on the fixed date, and

ii. apply the testing standard or the efficiency standard or requirement set out in the incorporated document that would apply if the appliance or product were manufactured on the notional future date referred to in paragraph 1.

3. If a testing standard or an efficiency standard or requirement set out in section 1 of a Schedule to this Regulation incorporates by reference a document as it reads on the date the particular appliance or product is manufactured the person shall,

i. use the version of the incorporated document that is in effect on the actual date the particular product or appliance is manufactured, and

ii. apply the testing standard or the efficiency standard or requirement set out in the incorporated standard that would apply if the appliance or product were manufactured on the notional future date referred to in paragraph 1.

(2) For greater certainty, early compliance under subsection (1) is not permitted if,

(a) section 1 of the applicable Schedule to this Regulation does not provide for a testing standard and an efficiency standard or requirement that would apply to the particular appliance or product on the notional future date selected under paragraph 1 of subsection (1); or

(b) an incorporated document does not set out either a testing standard or an efficiency standard or requirement that would apply to the particular appliance or product on the notional future date or the actual date, as the case may be.

Equivalent testing standard

5. Where a testing standard is set out in section 1 of a Schedule to this Regulation, the person who is to apply the standard may apply a different standard, or a combination of standards or components of standards, as long as the person is satisfied on reasonable grounds that the testing standard, as it pertains to the prescribed efficiency standard or requirement, is equivalent.

More specific scope of application prevails

6. If more than one scope of application set out in the Schedules to this Regulation applies to an appliance or product, the scope of application that applies most specifically to the appliance or product is the one to be applied.

Alternative methods of determining energy efficiency

7. Where a Schedule to this Regulation makes reference in a testing standard to Part 430 or 431 of the U.S. DOE 10 Code of Federal Regulations with respect to a date or period, the reference is to be read as incorporating any alternative methods of determining energy efficiency or energy use that, under section 429.70 of that Code and any other provisions of Part 429 referred to in section 429.70, may be applied with respect to Part 430 or 431 as of that date or period, but, for greater certainty, all requirements under sections 9 and 10 of this Regulation continue to apply.

Waivers and exceptions

8. Where a Schedule to this Regulation makes reference in a testing standard or efficiency requirement to U.S. DOE 10 Code of Federal Regulations as it read on the date an appliance or product is manufactured, any waiver or exception to the testing standard or efficiency requirement that applies to the appliance or product under that Code in response to the petition of a manufacturer is also incorporated, subject to any conditions that apply to that waiver or exception.

Circumstances permitting use of prescribed labels, etc.

9. (1) A prescribed label or other prescribed marking may, under clause 25.35.7 (2) (b) of the Act, be affixed to an appliance or product if both of the following requirements are satisfied:

fenestration products

Efficiency Standards and Requirements

1. The prescribed efficiency standards and requirements for a fenestration product listed below are as follows, if the product is manufactured during the period indicated and falls within the scope of application indicated:

1. Window, intended for low-rise residential building:

i. Date of manufacture:  January 1, 2014 or later.

ii. Testing standard:  Either,

A. CAN/CSA A440.2-14/A440.3-14, Fenestration energy performance, or

B. either NFRC 100-2014 Procedure for Determining Fenestration Product U-Factors or, for the energy rating, NFRC 200-2014 Procedure for Determining Fenestration Product Solar Heat Gain Coefficient and Visible Transmittance at Normal Incidence.

iii. Scope of application:  a window that separates heated space from unheated space or from the exterior air and that is to be installed in a building that is partially or entirely used for residential occupancy, has a building area not exceeding 600 square metres and has a building height of three storeys or less.  However, the following windows are excluded:

A. decorative windows that have stained glass panels, iron inserts or blinds contained in a sealed insulating glass unit,

B. heritage replacement windows intended to be installed in a heritage building,

C. glazing replacements in an existing sash or frame, if the U-factor of the replacement glazing is equal to or less than the U-factor of the original glazing,

D. decorative sidelights for doors,

E. windows that are designed for a specific building, and

F. windows that fall outside the scope of the certification programs of the designated organizations described in subsections 9 (2) and (3) of this Regulation.

iv. Prescribed efficiency standard or requirement:

A. double-glazed with a low-E coating for basement windows that incorporate a loadbearing structural frame, and

B. in all other cases, U-factor ≤ 2.0 W/(m²C) or an energy rating ≥ 17.
