With the introduction of Euroclass in the year 2000, the common standard for building materials is now fully implemented and means that all building materials that are manufactured and sold in the EU are subject to the Euroclass system. This in turn identifies their fire preventive properties and helps indicate their suitability for building application.
The system is divided into various classes in accordance to the following:
|A1||Non-flammable materials||No contribution to fire|
|A2||Non-flammable materials||No noticeable contribution to fire|
|B||Flammable||Little or no contribution to fire|
|C||Flammable||Limited contribution to fire|
|D||Flammable||Contributes to fire|
|E||Flammable||Major contribution to fire|
|F||Flammable||Not within classes A1-E|
