BS EN 16156:2010 Cigarettes. Assessment of the ignition propensity. Safety requirement

Introduction

A very common initiating event in a fatal fire is the dropping of a cigarette onto a bed or piece of upholstered furniture. The burning cigarette heats the furnishing materials to the point where smouldering combustion begins, perhaps followed by a transition to flaming combustion. Since limiting the frequency of ignitions is a principal approach to reducing fire loss, it is desirable to establish a test method for the propensity of a cigarette to ignite soft furnishings.

BS EN 16156:2010 specifies fire safety requirement for cigarettes.
