Refrigerated display cabinets - Part 1: Vocabulary (ISO 23953-1:2023); German version EN ISO 23953-1:2023


This part of ISO 23953 establishes a vocabulary of terms and definitions relative to refrigerated display cabinets used for the sale and display of foodstuffs. It is not applicable to refrigerated vending machines or cabinets intended for use in catering or similar non-retail applications. NOTE: In addition to terms in English and French, two of the three official ISO languages, this part of ISO 23953 gives the equivalent terms in German, Italian, and Spanish; these are published under the responsibility of the member bodies for Germany (DIN), Italy (UNI), and Spain (UNE). However, only the terms and definitions given in the official languages can be considered as ISO terms and definitions.
