Passive Fire Conference

In this presentation Niall Rowan will update on the proposed withdrawal of British Standards to satisfy Approved Document B in England. The proposal put forward by the Department of Levelling Up Communities and Housing (DLUCH) will mean the end of BS 476 tests which have been a cornerstone of fire safety of over 70 years. He will also explain how the proposed use of European Classes will restrict choices of products, and with no route to use assessments, will be unable to address product performance in end use applications.
