Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation on the meaning of ISO specific terms and expressions related to conformity

assessment, as well as information about ISO’s adherence to the WTO principles in the Technical

Barriers to Trade (TBT) see the following URL: Foreword - Supplementary information

ISO 23953-1 was prepared by European Committee for Standardization (CEN) in collaboration with

ISO/TC 86, Refrigeration and air-conditioning, Subcommittee SC 7, Testing and rating of commercial

refrigerated display cabinets, in accordance with the Agreement on technical cooperation between ISO

and CEN (Vienna Agreement).

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 23953-1:2005 and ISO 23953-1:2005/Amd

1:2012), which has been technically revised. ISO 23953-1 reports new terms and definitions also

taking into account Directive 2009/125/EC “establishing a framework for the setting of ecodesign

requirements for energy-related products”, oriented to an energy rating management. Moreover, new

terms and definitions were added on test environment. Some existing terms were updated consistently

to the modifications of ISO 23953-2.
