As the unique independent body empowered to organize and assess the fire behavior test campaigns and inter-laboratories comparison in the railway fields, CERTIFER completed the 2017-eurocampaign.
In order to be accredited according to EN17025 standard by national accreditation authorities, laboratories have to prove the fulfilment of the test campaign participation condition. In this framework, CERTIFER organizes for more than 10 years an annual euro-comparison campaign.
On 30 January 2018, CERTIFER presented the results of the campaign during a feedback meeting with the participation of 25 laboratory representatives.
In this 2017 edition, all the laboratories from France (Cahors, CREPIM, CSTB, Efectis, IFTH, LNE, Nexans, RATP, RESCOLL, Safran, SEIFEL, Stratiforme), Austria (TGM), Belgium (Centexbel, ISSeP), China (SGS), Germany (BASF, Currenta, Deutsche Bahn, DMT, RST), Italy (CSI, Lapi, LSF), Japan (Jectec), Luxembourg (LIST), Poland (Instytut Kolejnictwa, Sychta), Spain (Technalia), Sweden (RISE), Switzerland (Lantal)& UK (BRE, Exova) successfully passed the tests.
