You CAN test before hand to see if you can go to level 40 without

You CAN NOT test before hand to see if going from 40 to 50 will cause
any problems.

In the manual: 

"Most of the additional security measures that are enforced at security
level 50 do
not cause audit journal entries at lower security levels. Therefore, an
cannot be tested for all possible integrity error conditions prior to
changing to
security level 50.

The actions that cause errors at security level 50 are uncommon in
application software. Most software that runs successfully at security
level 40 also
runs at security level 50.

If you are currently running at security level 40, you can change to
security level
50 without extra testing. Security level 50 cannot be tested in advance.
additional integrity protection that is enforced at security level 50
does not produce
error messages or journal entries at lower security levels."
