Refrigerated Beverage Vending Machines

 For the purposes of these Regulations, the class of a refrigerated beverage vending machine is one of the following:

  • (a) Class A, if it is not a combination vending machine and 25% or more of the surface area on the front side of the refrigerated beverage vending machine is transparent;

  • (b) Class B, if it is not a combination vending machine and less than 25% of the surface area on the front side of the refrigerated beverage vending machine is transparent;

  • (c) Combination A, if it is a combination vending machine and 25% or more of the surface area on its front side is transparent; and

  • (d) Combination B, if it is a combination vending machine and less than 25% of the surface area on its front side is transparent.

  • SOR/2019-163, s. 45

Marginal note:Energy-using product

  •  (1) A refrigerated beverage vending machine is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 648, a refrigerated beverage vending machine is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after January 1, 2007.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards

  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 2 of the table to this section apply to refrigerated beverage vending machines described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 3.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) The refrigerated beverage vending machine complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard in the following circumstances:

    • (a) subject to paragraph (b), it is manufactured before January 8, 2019 and tested in accordance with testing procedures established by sections 1 to 7.2 of ASHRAE 32.1 that are applicable to a refrigerated beverage vending machine as defined in section 646, except that the ambient temperature during the testing to determine Edaily must be 23.9°C ± 1°C;

    • (b) it is manufactured before August 31, 2012, is designed to display and dispense less than 20 discrete types of beverages and is tested in accordance with testing procedures established by sections 1 to 7.2 of ASHRAE 32.1 that are applicable to a refrigerated beverage vending machine as defined in section 646, except that the ambient temperature during the testing to determine the Edaily must be 32.2°C ± 1°C; or

    • (c) it is manufactured on or after January 8, 2019 and tested in accordance with testing procedures established by CSA C804.
