The standard also specifies conditions, performance values and the comfort parameter validation methods for compartments or saloons.
This European Standard is applicable to urban (metro, tramway), suburban and/or regional vehicles equipped with cooling and/or heating/ventilation systems. It does not apply to main line vehicles and driver's cabs which are considered in separate European Standards.
When the standard is harmonized under a directive or regulation, the word Harmonized appear. When such an inscription does not appear, it means that the standard is related to / supporting the relevant directive or regulation.
