Moving Breaker Panel outside

I was asked a question from a farmer about moving the breaker panel in one shed from inside to outside. This is a satelite building with the main disconnect on a pole in the middle of the farm. He is wondering if it is possible to relocate the panel to the outside of the same wall, to make room for some pumps that need to be where the panel is currently located. Being that it is a subpanel in the current electrical system I am wondering what needs to be done to make this legit.

Moving Breaker Panel outside

If it wired correctly to begin with, you need a new panel rated for outside.

All the current circuits would need to be relocated to the new panel
