What is the difference between refrigerated storage cabinets for professional applications and for commercial applications?

Regulation (EU) 2015/1094 and Regulation (EU) 2015/1095 apply to the refrigerated storage cabinets belonging to the professional sector, i.e. to those appliances intended for use 'in non-household environments but not for the display to or access by customers' (Article 2.1.a of Regulation (EU) 2015/1095). Therefore, an appliance for commercial use (i.e. to be used to display products to the final customer, or directly accessible by him/her) is not in scope to these regulations.

Disclaimer: Please note that the European Commission cannot provide a legally binding interpretation of the EU legislation, as this is the sole competence of the European Court of Justice. Any remarks from the European Commission services are without prejudice to the position the Commission might take should related cases arise in a procedure before the Court of Justice.
