ISO TC92 - Fire Safety

Technical Committee 92 held its first meeting in London in 1961 under the title 'Fire Tests on Building Materials and Structures'. In May 1995, the Technical Management Board of ISO endorsed a significant broadening of the Committee's scope under a new title 'Fire Safety'.

The following are links to a brief introduction to TC92, details of the current structure, a list of the standards of the committee and proposals for the subsequent development of the committee's work and structure. This includes a paper presenting a framework for the future standardisation of fire safety agreed at the 20th Plenary Meeting on 28 March 2002.

The latter aspect is also covered in a paper on the work of ISO TC92 delivered at Eurofire 98 (March 1998) by the chairman.

Links are also provided to the ISO Online pages on TC92, and the homepages developed by the Reaction to Fire subcommittee, SC1.
