In July 2009 the new SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) regulations came into force, which are used all over the world by all flag states. In support of these new rules, a new Fire Test Procedures Code (FTP) has been established, summarizing the regulations on fire protection and fire test methods.

In 2001 a new High-Speed Craft Code (HSC) was published to control the new generation of lightweight fast catamarans and monohulls.

An overview of all fire test methods prescribed by the FTP and HSC Codes, for which WFRGENT nv holds accreditation:

2010 FTP Code MSC.307(88) Annex 1, part 1: Non-combustibility (cfr. (EN) ISO 1182 Non-combustibility Test)
2010 FTP Code MSC.307(88) Annex 1, part 3: Fire resistance tests for "A", "B" and "F" class divisions (decks, bulkheads, pipe penetrations and cable transits)
2010 FTP Code MSC.307(88) Annex 1, part 5: Inflammability - Surface for bulkhead, wall, ceiling and floor linings (cfr. ISO 5658-2)

We can also perform the following tests indicatively:

2010 FTP Code MSC.307(88) Annex 1, part 10 - appendix 1: Full-Scale Room Test (cfr. ISO 9705-1)
2010 FTP Code MSC.307(88) Annex 1, part 10 - appendix 1: Cone calorimeter (cfr. ISO 5660)
