Finalisation of the European approach to assess the fire performance of facades

The project is formed in accordance with the Invitation to Tender for “Finalisation of the European approach to assess the fire performance of facades” (Call for tenders No 761/PP/GRO/IMA/19/1133/11140) of the European commission (September 2019). The objective of the project is to finalise the methodology to assess the fire performance of façades including test methods and a proposal on classification.

The project consortium consists of five organisations, with leading international reputations and strong backgrounds in fire testing and certification activities, and with particular experience in the development of façade fire testing methods. The project is led by RISE, the previous chair of the European Group of Laboratories for Fire testing (EGOLF) Technical Committee on fire resistance (TC2) in liaison with EOTA, CEN TC127, ISO TC92/SC1 and SH02.

The aim is to finalise and fine-tune the assessment method developed by the Contractor at the previous stage as the “alternative method” so that the method can be directly used for harmonised products standards (in CEN) and for European Assessment Documents (in EOTA) regarding the relevant construction products (kits) within the framework of implementation of Regulation (EU) 305/2011.

The outcome of the project is a European approach to assess the fire performance of facades.
