Effective June 19, 2017
Effective Date (see Schedule below): June 19, 2017
Impact Statement: A review of all Listing Reports is necessary to determine which products comply with new/revised requirements and which products will require re-evaluation. NOTE: Effective immediately, this revised standard will be exclusively used for evaluation of new products unless the Applicant requests in writing that current requirements be used along with their understanding that their listings will be withdrawn on Effective Date noted above, unless the product is found to comply with new/revised requirements.
Overview of Changes (Specific details of new/revised requirements are found in table below):
Schedule: So that shipping of products with Listing Marks will not be interrupted, an approximate schedule has been established to ensure Listing Reports are found compliant by Effective Date:
Fees: An initial review of Listing Report (s) will be covered by a direct billing project and will be invoiced at not more than $1000 per report.
Client Action Required:
Information – To assist our Engineer with review of your Listing Reports, please submit technical information in response to the new/revised paragraphs noted in the attached or explain why these new/revised requirements do not apply to your product (s).
Current Listings Not Active? – Please immediately identify any current Listing Reports or products that are no longer active and should be removed from our records. We will do this at no charge as long as Intertek is notified in writing prior to the review of your reports.

THERMOELECTRIC REFRIGERATOR –
|38A||New section added;|
|38A.1||A thermoelectric cooling appliance shall comply with requirements in this standard except for those requirements specifically applying to vapor-compression refrigeration systems.|
|38A.2||In addition to the temperature test in the cooling mode, when a thermoelectric appliance can also be operated in a heating mode, it shall comply with the Temperature Test, Section 44, when operated in the heating mode, except the ambient temperature shall be 77 ±5 ºF (25 ±3ºC).|
|38A.3||A thermoelectric cooling appliance in which the thermoelectric circuit is powered by a low voltage Class 2 or Limited Power Source supply shall not result in a risk of fire as specified in accordance with 83D.1.1, if no fan is provided or 83D.1.2 if provided with fan(s).|
|38A.4||A thermoelectric cooling appliance in which the thermoelectric circuit is powered by other than a low voltage Class 2 or Limited Power Source supply shall not result in a risk of fire or electric shock in accordance with 83D.1.1 (if no fan is provided), 83D.1.2 (if provided with fan(s)), and 83D.1.3.|
|38A.5||In reference to 38A.3 and 38A.4, a thermoelectric cooling appliance that uses a fan motor, other than one that is protected in accordance with Section 18.2, to cool the semiconductor thermoelectric module shall not develop temperatures exceeding 302°F (150°C) on the fan motor winding (open type) or on the fan motor enclosure (enclosed type) when tested in accordance with 83D.3.1. This requirement also applies to fan motors supplied by a low voltage Class 2 or Limited Power Source circuit.|
|38A.6||In reference to the polymeric material requirements, a semiconductor thermoelectric module powered by other than a low voltage Class 2 or Limited Power Source circuit shall be considered an ignition source.|
|83D||New section added;|
Tests on Thermoelectric Refrigerators and Freezers
|Supplement SC||New section added;|
