ADCAS TGD 01/20.08  Fire test standards and the Construction Products Regulation in relation to fire resisting ventilation and smoke control ductwork.

Following the implementation of construction products regulations (CPR) in July 2013, it is a legal requirement to comply with any harmonised European product standard and provide tested products covered by that standard. For fire resisting ventilation and smoke control duct sections, not all the required standards are published and this limits what can be supplied. This joint ADCAS, ASFP and BESA Guidance is to provides an understanding of what these limitations are, when they will change and what individual stakeholders can do in the intervening period.
