The California Energy Commission (CEC) requires that regulated appliances must meet minimum appliance energy efficiency standards and are registered in the Modernized Appliance Efficiency Database System (MAEDbS) with accurate information, including brand name, manufacturer name, and model numbers.
On February 6, 2023, we’ll start to restrict the sale of products to California that are not registered in the MAEDbS in the following categories:
- Pool Products & Portable Spa Products
- Portable Air Conditioners
- Computers and Monitors
Any products that you sell in these categories will still be available for sale on Amazon; however, they won’t be available for sale into California until you properly register them with the CEC’s MAEDbS. Once we confirm your products have been registered, your listings will be automatically re-instated for sale into California.
For more information on the product types that require MAEDbS registration, go to California Energy Commission (CEC).
