BRUFMA Summary of the large-scale fire testing carried out by DCLG during August 2017

Upon completion of the recent BS 8414-1:2015+A1:2017 testing commissioned by the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG), BRUFMA has analysed the test results published and outlined its findings below.  BRUFMA fully approves the DCLG 8414-1 test programme and support the need for the publication of the actual (named) component materials used in the tests along with the Declaration of Performance (DOP).  It is of critical importance not to rely on ‘generic’ labels to illustrate a material performance.  You can view a copy of our full response here.
