The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued an announcement last Thursday stating it “recognizes that it needs additional time to review and respond to the comments received on the Energy Star for Windows, Doors and Skylights Version 6.0 Draft 2 specification and revised skylight criteria.” A revised timeline is not yet available, but EPA plans to keep stakeholders informed of its process on the criteria revision.

“We are committed to ensuring that our partners have adequate time to respond to the final Version 6.0 specification and will make adjustments to the implementation schedule if needed,” said Doug Anderson, program Manager, Energy Star for Windows, Doors and Skylights, in that announcement.

Anderson also told DWM magazine last Friday, “It might take a little longer than we thought to respond to comments. We’re not ready to say how much longer. We will try to have a new timeline by the NFRC meeting on April 8-10.”
