This document specifies a method of test for determining the reaction to fire performance of construction products excluding floorings, and excluding products which are indicated in Table 1 of EC Decision 2000/147/EC, when exposed to thermal attack by a single burning item (SBI). The calculation procedures are given in Annex A. Information on the precision of the test method is given in Annex B. The calibration procedures are given in Annexes C and D, of which Annex C is a normative annex.

NOTE This document has been developed to determine the reaction to fire performance of essentially flat products. The treatment of some families of products, e.g. linear products (pipes, ducts, cables etc.), can need special rules.

This document sets out minimum performance requirements for station uniforms for firefighters.

NOTE A station uniform as defined by this standard is understood to not be a formal uniform or parade uniform, which are not likely to be worn under primary protective firefighting garments.

Garments developed in accordance with this document should complement the performance built into primary protection Firefighting garments in terms of minimising impact on metabolic heat.

This document specifies two levels of requirements station uniforms:

Level 1 specifies minimum no melting nor dripping requirements that provide no additional protection but ensure the fire fighter is not harmed by the melting of station uniform materials in cases where heat or flames impinge the station uniform.

Level 2 specifies heat and flame requirements to provide minimum protection. It can be combined with additional layers or garments to meet the requirements of a standard for a specific primary protection garment, this combination should provide improved protection and comfort.

This document specifies requirements and test methods for power operated pedestrian entrance control equipment such as turnstiles, swing lanes and retractable lanes. Such products may be operated electro-mechanically or electro-hydraulically. They are usually used in order to allow authorized persons to switch from one zone to another zone one at the time.

This document covers safety in use of power operated pedestrian entrance control equipment used for normal access as well as in escape routes.

This document deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to power operated pedestrian entrance control equipment when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable as identified in Clause 4.

All lifetime phases of the machinery including transportation, assembly, dismantling, disabling and scrapping are considered by this standard.

This document does not apply to:

- power operated pedestrian doors according to EN 16005 and EN 16361;

- external and internal pedestrian doors according to EN 14351-1 and EN 14351-2;

- mechanical turnstiles with electric/electronic unlocking system;

- vertically moving power operated pedestrian entrance control equipment;

- power operated pedestrian entrance control equipment used in industrial processes;

- power operated pedestrian entrance control equipment for people with special needs;

- platform doors for subway and railway.

For power operated pedestrian entrance control equipment used in sports grounds and spectator facilities additional national requirements may apply.

This document is not applicable to power operated pedestrian entrance control equipment manufactured before the date of publication of the standard.

In general, this standard does not take into account:

- children playing with the equipment;

- the use of the equipment by children younger than 8 years without supervision;

It is recognized that very vulnerable people may have needs beyond the level addressed in this standard.

NOTE Vulnerable people are persons having reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities (e.g. partially disabled, elderly having some reduction in their physical and mental capabilities), or lack of experience and knowledge (e.g. children between 8 years and 14 years).

When the term "power operated pedestrian entrance control equipment" is used throughout the document it identifies all the possible type and variation of the products covered by the scope of this document.

This International Standard specifies ergonomic requirements and recommendations of spoken instructions for consumer products that are used as a means of instructions for operations or feedback of the status of products when used by a person with or without visual impairments.

NOTE 1 Spoken instructions are also useful for some users who have difficulty in reading and those with cognitive impairment.

The requirements and recommendations described in this standard do not depend on the language of guides and are applicable to conventional, stand-alone consumer products in general whose function is limited by characteristics that prevent the user from attaching, installing or using assistive technology. They are not applied to machines and equipment used for professional work.

This document is applicable to spoken instructions of both recorded human speech and synthesized speech from text.

This document does not apply to products for which the instructional content and/or the means of presentation are regulated by law or specified in other standards (e.g. medical devices, fire alarms). It also does not provide recommendations or requirements for spoken instructions of Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems or digital assistants on personal computers or similar devices.

This European Standard specifies requirements and gives recommendations for the design, installation and maintenance of fixed fire sprinkler systems in buildings and industrial plants, and particular requirements for sprinkler systems that are integral to measures for the protection of life.

This European Standard covers only the types of sprinkler specified in EN 12259-1 (see Annex L).

The requirements and recommendations of this European Standard are also applicable to any addition, extension, repair or other modification to a sprinkler system. They are not applicable to water spray or deluge systems.

It covers the classification of hazards, provision of water supplies, components to be used, installation and testing of the system, maintenance, and the extension of existing systems, and identifies construction details of buildings which are the minimum necessary for satisfactory performance of sprinkler systems complying with this European Standard.

This European Standard does not cover water supplies to systems other than sprinklers. Its requirements can be used as guidance for other fixed firefighting extinguishing systems, provided that any specific requirements for other firefighting extinguishing supplies are taken into account.

This European Standard is intended for use by those concerned with purchasing, designing, installing, testing, inspecting, approving, operating and maintaining automatic sprinkler systems, in order that such equipment will function as intended throughout its life.

This European Standard is intended only for fixed fire sprinkler systems in buildings and other premises on land. Although the general principles might well apply to other uses (e.g. maritime use), For these other uses additional considerations should be taken into account.

The requirements are not valid for automatic sprinkler systems on ships, in aircraft, on vehicles and mobile fire appliances or for below ground systems in the mining industry.

Sprinkler system design deviations might be allowed when such deviations have been shown to provide a level of protection at least equivalent to this European Standard, for example by means of full-scale fire testing where appropriate, and where the design criteria have been fully documented.
