This document gives the procedures for preparing standards and reports following the extended application (EXAP) process using the results of reaction to fire tests, fire resistance tests (including other performance characteristics e.g. smoke leakage/control and/or durability of self-closing), and external fire exposure to roof tests undertaken for fire classification of products and product families in accordance with the various parts of EN 13501. EXAP rules limit the number of tests required by implementing methods to determine the fire classification of a range of products (e.g. range of product, larger dimensions etc.) and EXAP rules form a standardized technical agreement on the parameter changes.
The fundamental concept of EXAP is the development of safe methods that provide extensions to the scope of the tested product while maintaining the required classification for the product. Test reports constitute the basis of an EXAP report.
This document makes reference to ‘extended application standards’ throughout; wherever this term is used it refers to either a standard prepared by CEN/TC 127 ‘Fire safety in buildings’ or the relevant product standard which includes information on extended application.
The European system currently permits extended application rules to be included in technical specifications. CEN Technical Committees and EOTA Working groups producing these rules are asked to seek the guidance of CEN/TC 127 to ensure that their rules comply with standards prepared by CEN/TC 127. In cases where extended application rules in harmonized EN product standards and ETAs do not comply with standards prepared by CEN/TC 127 the CEN BT are informed.
This document does not cover the incorporation of the product into the construction works that is justified by national rules.
Expert judgements (i.e. an opinion that is not considered/covered by an EXAP standard and only based on the experience of one individual) do not form part of this process.

This document provides the reaction to fire classification procedure for all construction products, including products incorporated within building elements with the exception of power, control and communication cables which are covered by EN 13501-6.
Products are considered in relation to their end use application.
This document applies to three categories, which are treated separately in this document:
-   construction products, excluding floorings and linear pipe thermal insulation products;
-   floorings;
-   linear pipe thermal insulation products.
NOTE   For CE marking of construction products under the Construction Product Regulation ((EC) 305/2011) the NPD option can be used when no reaction of fire performance is to be declared.

This European Standard provides the fire performance classification procedures for roofs/roof coverings exposed to external fire based on the four test methods given in CEN/TS 1187:2012 and the relevant extended application rules.
For the classification of a roof/roof covering, only those test methods and those application rules need to be applied for which the corresponding classification is envisaged.
Products are considered in relation to their end use application.
NOTE   The distinction between roofs with a steep slope and facades, in terms of the test and classification standard to be applied, may be subject to national regulations.
General information on the four test methods in CEN/TS 1187 is given in Annex A.
