COMMISSION DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) No 1292/2014

of 17 July 2014

on the conditions for classification, without testing, of certain uncoated wood floorings under EN 14342 with regard to their reaction to fire

(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 harmonized 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, with regard to their reaction to fire was adopted in Commission Decision 2000/147/EC (2). Wood floorings are among the construction products to which that Decision applies.

(2)

Tests have shown wood floorings covered by the harmonised standard EN 14342 to have a stable and predictable performance concerning reaction to fire provided that they meet certain conditions regarding the density of the wood, the thickness of the flooring and the end use of the product.

(3)

Wood floorings covered by the harmonised standard EN 14342 should therefore be deemed to satisfy the classes of performance for reaction to fire established in Decision 2000/147/EC on those conditions without further testing being required,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Wood floorings covered by the harmonised standard EN 14342 which fulfil the conditions set out in the Annex shall be deemed to satisfy the classes of performance indicated in the Annex without testing.

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, 17 July 2014.
