Fire safety certificate for fire resistant carpets for Russia
In addition to TR CU 017/2011 “On safety of light industries products”, carpeting can be subject to National Fire Safety Certificate. When fireproof floor covering is intended to be used in public premises, specific requirements for fire safety characteristics can be set by the customer. We have an experience in certification of non-combustible carpets for export to Russia. You can read more about our experience in our Study case.
Despite the fact that the compliance procedure is similar to foreign one, Russian Fire Safety Certificate cannot be obtained based on foreign test reports. The real tests according to National standards for fire hazard must be performed based on which the fire safety classification is assigned.
Compliance with National fire safety regulations is controlled by the following parameters:
- Ability to spread flame over the surface
- Smoke-forming ability
- Toxic combustion products
See more details about fire safety classification (KM0 – KM5).
Update: On May 3, 2021, amendments to the Federal Law of Russia "Technical Regulations on Fire Safety Requirements" were approved.
KM classes will be replaced by fire hazard indicators.
Moreover, in case of certification of serial production, an audit of manufacturing site must be organized.
WWG can help both with site audit organization and sample testing of fireproof carpets. Please send your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
