Note that the requirements for this equipment have not changed from the 2013 to the 2016 version of the Standards; any testing performed on or after January 1, 2017 must be performed under airflow, however re-testing of units already tested without airflow (allowed by an ambiguity in the 2013 Standards) is not required per the findings of additional tests performed. Products certified to this list are compliant with both versions of the Standards.
