According to Airbus "Getting to grips with Cold Weather Operations" page 14:

"Minimum OAT should be established and specified for using approach and takeoff procedures if FINAL APPR mode (V-NAV in approach) use is intended."

I undestand that fully managed non preciion approaches do not follow a final approach decent angle but aim to reach a QNH constrain altitude.

Right?

As is understand this, it means you should carefully consider temperature correction in minimum steps and MDA/DH. If it's cold, the real altitude is lower than the one indicated on your altimeter.

This is valid for every aircraft. But since you are flying an NPA like an ILS, it might be more important to check.
