BS EN 60695-8-2:2017

Fire hazard testing. Heat release. Summary and relevance of test methods

Status : Current   Published : March 2017



IEC 60695-8-2:2016 presents a summary of published test methods that are relevant to the determination of the heat released in fire tests on electrotechnical products or materials from which they are formed. It represents the current state of the art of the test methods and, where available, includes special observations on their relevance and use. The list of test methods is not to be considered exhaustive, and test methods that were not developed by the IEC are not to be considered as endorsed by the IEC unless this is specifically stated. Heat release data can be used as part of fire hazard assessment and in fire safety engineering, as discussed in IEC 60695-1-10, IEC 60695-1-11 and IEC 60695-1-12. This standard is to be used in conjunction with IEC 60695-8-1. It has the status of a horizontal standard in accordance with

IEC Guide 104

and ISO/IEC Guide 51. Key words: Fire Hazard, Heat Release, Fire Safety Engineering, Test Methods
