NPGA Weighs in on CPSC Furnace Rule

On January 25th, NPGA joined the American Gas Association and the American Public Gas Association (“Coalition’) in a joint comment opposing the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) Proposed Rule on Consumer Furnaces. The Proposed Rule seeks to require carbon monoxide detectors in consumer furnaces. The coalition noted the flaws in the CPSC’s cost-benefit analysis, manufacturer impact analysis, the reliability of CPSC’s proposed requirements, and existing standards from National Fire Protection Association Code 1, the International Fire Code, and requirements in 27 states for carbon monoxide detectors in homes.
