|Standard number:||21/30432804 DC|
|Status:||Draft for Comment|
This standard 21/30432804 DC BS EN ISO 12863. Standard test method for assessing the ignition propensity of cigarettes is classified in these ICS categories:
- 65.160 Tobacco, tobacco products and related equipment
- 13.220.40 Ignitability and burning behaviour of materials and products
This International Standard provides a standard assessment of the capability of a cigarette, positioned on one of three standard substrates, to extinguish or to generate sufficient heat to continue burning, and thus potentially cause ignition of bedding or upholstered furniture. This International Standard is applicable to factory-made cigarettes that burn along the length of a tobacco column. This is a performance-based standard; it does not prescribe any design features of the cigarette that might lead to improved or degraded performance in the test method. The output of this method has been correlated with the potential for cigarettes to ignite upholstered furniture.
