Members of the independent expert advisory panel witnessed a series of BS 8414 fire tests commissioned by my department and had full access to the Building Research Establishment’s fire test reports for each of the tests. As such they were able to consider the nature of the test and decide whether it provided the necessary information before issuing detailed advice on cladding systems.
