ISO 20283-3:2006 gives guidelines, requirements and procedures for the measurement of vibration generated by types of shipboard equipment, and which can be transmitted into a ship structure as structure-borne sound, as part of the factory acceptance test (FAT) of the equipment unit. It specifies the measurements to be conducted for well-defined operating and mounting conditions of the unit, e.g. in the supplier's test rig. It provides a framework for providing representative test results. It is applicable to shipboard equipment intended for passenger ships, merchant ships, yachts and high-speed craft.
