EGOLF Reaction to Fire

There are many factors which may affect the results of a reaction-to-fire test. Due to the very labour intensive nature off fire testing, many of the factors are operator dependent. The training, experience and attitude of the operator are therefore crucial to eliminate such variables that may significantly affect the degree of uncertainty of measurements.

In order to reach common interpretations and minimize the operator generated uncertainties, EGOLF (European Group of Organisations for Fire testing, inspection and certification), is arranging harmonization courses in various EN standards related to reaction-to-fire. These test methods are included in the fire classification of construction products and building elements, EN 13501-1.

Target audience

The course is open for both EGOLF and non-EGOLF members
