This is the third edition of CAN/CSA-C804, Energy performance of refrigerated bottled or canned beverage vending machines. It supersedes the previous editions published in 2009 and 1996 under the title Energy performance of vending machines.
This Standard specifies maximum daily energy consumption for vending machines and provides a uniform procedure to test compliance.
This Standard has taken into consideration testing and evaluating the energy efficiency of refrigerated bottled or canned beverage vending machines specified in the United States Department of Energy (DOE) publication Title 10 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 431, subpart Q as published on July 31, 2015, per the Canadian-U.S. Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC) initiative.
CSA gratefully acknowledges the financial contributions of Natural Resources Canada, BC Hydro, Manitoba Hydro, Nova Scotia Department of Energy, EfficiencyOne, and Sask Power towards the development of this Standard.

This Standard specifies energy performance requirements for self-contained, refrigerated bottled, or canned beverage vending machines that actively cool bottled, canned, or other sealed refrigerated beverages.
This Standard specifies
a) uniform procedures for measuring energy consumption;
b) maximum daily energy consumption levels; and
c) refrigerated volume, vending capacity, and surface area calculation.
This Standard applies to Class A, Class B, Combination A, and Combination B vending machines, as defined in Clause 3.
In this Standard, shall is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; should is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and may is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.
