FIRE TESTING

HPVA Laboratories offers certification to a wide range of fire test standards (see list here). While certification to these standards is not technically required by the building code, building inspectors often look for a certification “stamp” from a third party certification company like HPVA Laboratories or UL to confirm conformance with the code. We customize our fire certification programs to fit your needs, so contact us directly for more information! Common certification programs are based on the ASTM E84 Tunnel Test and the ASTM E648 Flooring Radiant Panel test.

ANS LTDD 1.0 2015

Recent criminal prosecutions highlight the need for an effective internal due diligence quality assurance program for establishing confidence that illegal timber is excluded from your timber supply chain. This certification program covers applicable laws regarding illegal timber (U.S. Lacey Act, EU Timber Regulation, Australia Illegal Logging Prohibition Act, Japan, and others).
