BSH Home Appliances Corporation (BSH) is an Irvine, California, based company who manufactures residential exhaust fans (range hoods). BSH sold or offered for sale range hoods in California, during the time period of January 2014 to April 2017.

This case started as an industry compliant. The Commission's investigation process identified BSH manufacturing and offering for sale range hoods not certified to the Appliance Efficiency Database (Database).

To settle this matter, BSH executed a Settlement Agreement with the Commission on December 15, 2017, for $97,870.00. The penalty monies are deposited into the Appliance Enforcement Subaccount established by SB 454 of 2011(Pavley). BSH has also agreed to a compliance plan to test and certify each basic model to the Database before continuing to sell into California.
