The rules for the selection of substrates for construction products when carrying out reaction to fire tests are also detailed in this European Standard.
This European Standard does not contain requirements for

- methods of cleaning (e.g. washing) and other methods for the assessment of durability aspects, which are dealt with in the relevant product standards.
