Settlement Amount

Emodern Decor, Inc. (Emodern) is a City of Industry, California based company that manufactures plumbing fittings. Emodern sold or offered for sale kitchen faucets in California, from July 2015 to October 2021.   

This case was the result of an investigation performed by California Energy Commission (CEC) staff. CEC’s investigation and testing process identified that Emodern was manufacturing and offering for sale kitchen faucets that failed the marking requirement and were not certified to the Modernized Appliance Efficiency Database System (MAEDbS).

To settle this matter, Emodern executed a Settlement Agreement with CEC on April 20, 2022, for $1,891.00. The penalty monies are deposited into the Appliance Efficiency Enforcement Subaccount established by SB 454 of 2011 (Pavley). Emodern has also agreed to a compliance plan to add the appropriate marking and certify all models to MAEDbS before continuing to sell in California.
