Draft Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) on the conditions for classification, without testing, of solid wood panelling and cladding with regard to their reaction to fire and amending Decision 2006/213/EC; (5 page(s), in English), (3 page(s), in English)

The reaction to fire performance of wood panelling and cladding, and wood ribbon elements, within the classification provided for in Regulation (EU) 2016/364, is well established only when the material is untreated. For this reason, the reaction to fire performance of these products can be deemed, without the need for any further testing, to achieve a certain class of performance, as defined in the European classification system mentioned above but this classification cannot be extended to untreated products. This Delegated Regulation is necessary to prevent misuse of the existing Commission Decision 2006/213/EC.
