ICS Code (Protection against dangerous goods): 13.300
scope:

This test method2, 3 is designed to determine the relative sensitivities of solid-phase hazardous materials to drop weight impact stimulus. For liquid-phase materials refer to Test Method D2540.

This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.

2 This test method is a modification of and contains concepts proposed by Hercules, Inc. personnel at Allegheny Ballistics Laboratory. The method was outlined by personnel of Pittsburgh Mining and Safety Research Center, U.S. Bureau of Mines, Pittsburgh, Pa. For additional information see Footnote 3.
