It specifies test conditions and methods for checking that the requirements have been satisfied, as well as the classification of the cabinets, their marking and the list of their characteristics to be declared by the manufacturer.
ISO 23953-2 does not apply to refrigerated vending machines, commercial beverage coolers and ice cream freezers. It is also not applicable to cabinets intended for storage or cabinets intended for use, for instance, in catering or non-retail refrigerated applications. The text of ISO 23953-2:2023 has been approved in Europe as EN ISO 23953-2:2023 without any changes.
