Bibliography

Explains the general principles of fire testing and identifies the specific objectives/outputs of the BS 476 series of test methods and their related European (EN) and International (ISO) Standards. And gives guidance as to which test should be used for which purpose and how the results from those tests generally define the role of the test in any prescriptive or functional regulatory regime.

This part of BS476 describes the general principles of fire testing and identifies the specific objectives/outputs of the BS476 series of test methods and their related European (EN) and International (ISO) Standards.

It provides guidance as to which test should be used for which purpose and how the results from those tests generally define the role of the test in any prescriptive or functional regulatory regime.

It is not intended to be used for determining the conformity of any product or construction to Essential Requirement 2 of the European Construction Product Directive [1].
