BS EN 60068-2-31 provides a test procedure for simulating the effects of shocks and falls on equipment, which may be received during repair work or rough handling.

This procedure does not simulate the effects of impacts received during transportation as loosely constrained cargo.

BS EN 60068-2-31 replaces BS EN 60068-2-31:1993, IEC 60068-2-31:1969, and BS EN 60068-2-32:1993.
