COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) No 1291/2014

of 16 July 2014

on the conditions for classification, without testing, of wood-based panels under EN 13986 and solid wood panelling and cladding under EN 14915 with regard to their fire protection ability, when used for wall and ceiling covering

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2011 laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products and repealing Council Directive 89/106/EEC (1), and in particular Article 27(5) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

A system for classifying the performance of construction products, construction works and parts thereof with regard to their resistance to fire was adopted in Commission Decision 2000/367/EC (2). Wood-based panels covered by the harmonised standard EN 13986, as well as solid wood panelling and cladding covered by the harmonised standard EN 14915 are among the construction products to which that Decision applies.

(2)

Tests have shown those products to have a stable and predictable performance concerning fire protection ability when used for wall and ceiling covering provided that the products meet certain conditions regarding the density of the wood and the thickness of the panels, panelling and cladding.

(3)

Wood-based panels covered by the harmonised standard EN 13986 and solid wood panelling and cladding covered by the harmonised standard EN 14915 should therefore be deemed to satisfy the classes of performance for fire protection ability established in Decision 2000/367/EC on those conditions without further testing being required,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Wood-based panels covered by the harmonised standard EN 13986 and solid wood panelling and cladding covered by the harmonised standard EN 14915 which fulfil the conditions set out in the Annex shall be deemed to satisfy the classes of performance indicated in the Annex without testing, when they are used for wall and ceiling covering.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 16 July 2014.
