CPSC extends comment period for rule on portable generators
Washington – The Consumer Product Safety Commission has extended the comment period for a proposed rule that would limit carbon monoxide emissions from portable generators.
The rule seeks to set weighted emissions rate limits at 75 grams per hour for portable generators powered by handheld spark-ignition engines and Class I spark-ignition engines. The proposed rate limit for one-cylinder, Class II spark-ignition engines is 150 grams per hour and 300 grams for two-cylinder, Class II spark-ignition engines.
CPSC stated that it is extending the comment period after receiving a request for more time for stakeholder feedback.
