    IEC 60721-3-2:2018 RLV contains both the official IEC International Standard and its Redline version. The Redline version is available in English only and provides you with a quick and easy way to compare all the changes between the official IEC Standard and its previous edition.

    IEC 60721-3-2:2018 classifies the groups of environmental parameters and their severities to which a product is subjected while being transported and handled. The most commonly used methods of transportation and handling have been taken into account, including the following:
    - road transport: cars, trucks;
    - rail transport: trains, trams;
    - water transport, inland and maritime: ships;
    - air transport: aircraft, jet, propeller, helicopter;
    - handling equipment: cranes, transport lifts, cableways, persons;
    - conveyors;
    - hand trollies.
    This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition, published in 1997, and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
    a. Clause 1: reworded and added handling.
    b. Clause 2: updated normative references.
    c. Clause 3: updated definitions.
    d. Clause 4: reworded and simplified.
    e. Clause 5: revised and updated. Several classes have been replaced by completely new classes based on the use of new information obtained from referenced Technical Reports.
    f. Table 1 through Table 5: updated.
    g. Table 6 added.
    h. Old annexes A to C removed except Clause A.3 that is incorporated in Clause 5.
    i. New Annex A.
    The contents of the corrigenda of November 2018 and June 2022 have been included in this copy.
