Round Robins

EGOLF Round Robins are important exercises to determine the accuracy and precision of fire test methods and respond to the requirement of national accreditation bodies that accredited fire laboratories participate in round robins as part of the documentation.  The results of such exercises determine how well laboratories are able to perform a particular test and give information about variability in equipment, test procedures and tools and also the reproducibility and repeatability of the test method.  They also reveal ways in which the test method can potentially be improved. Full reports of EGOLF Round Robins are confidential to members.  Public summary reports are available on the "Publications" page of the EGOLF website.

Recent EGOLF Round Robins include:

  • CEN/TS 1187:2012 Test Methods 1 and 2
  • Classification and field of application of a wall test
  • EN ISO 11925-2 (ignitability of building products)
  • EN ISO 1716 (determination of heat of combustion
  • EN ISO 1182 (non-combustibility)
  • EN ISO 9239-1
  • EN 1363-1 & EN 1365-3
  • SBI test to EN 13823
  • EN 1363-1 and EN 1634-1 (theoretical round robin on doors)

Round Robins proposed in 2018-2019 are:

  • Doorset to EN 1363-1 and EN 1634-1
  • Smouldering combusion to EN 16733
