This Technical Report provides guidance on "ignitability" tests for building products. It describes the principles of ignitability and characterizes different ignition sources.
The results of small-scale ignitability tests may be used as a component of a total hazard analysis of a specified fire scenario. It is therefore important that the flame or radiative source chosen is fully characterized so that relevant conclusions may be made from the test results.
Guidance given in this Technical Report may also have relevance to other application areas (e.g. building contents, plastics, etc.)
