Determination of fire hazard properties, Part 1: Wall and ceiling linings

Sets out procedures for the assessment of internal wall and ceiling linings according to their tendency to ignite; their tendency to release heat once ignition has occurred; their tendency to cause flashover; their tendency to release smoke; and their contribution to fire growth.
