This International Standard specifies test methods to determine the lateral stability of heavy commercial vehicle
combinations as defined in ISO 3833, including truck centre-axle trailer combinations and articulated buses. It is
applicable to trucks and trailers having a mass exceeding 3,5 t and buses having a mass exceeding 5 t, i.e. vehicle
categories N2, N3, O3, O4 and M3 according to 92/53/EEC.
The manoeuvres specified in these test methods are not fully representative of real driving conditions, but are
useful for determining the lateral stability of a heavy vehicle combination.
