We are not aware of any test carried out in the UK on High Pressure Laminates (HPL) panels since June 2017 other than the tests the Government is currently undertaking on

The Department is aware that manufacturers routinely carry out fire safety tests of their products but is not automatically made aware of these. The Building Research Establishment has published a catalogue of tests which it has undertaken where companies which have commissioned the test have agreed that the test be disclosed
