Study to evaluate the need to regulate within the Framework of Regulation (EU) 305/2011 on the toxicity of smoke produced by construction products in fires
EuroFSA welcomes the publication of this report that considered the need to create EU regulation on the toxicity of smoke produced from fires in construction products. We note that the report reflects the views presented by EuroFSA regarding risk from fire in the community. In particular that the greatest risk is in the home and is from the contents of buildings not from the construction products in building. We also note and support the concern over the lack of reliable fire statistics across the EU. This is not a new concern and EuroFSA has offered to share its ongoing initiative on gathering fire data involving active participation from a number of EU countries.
