Fire Foam testing for safety, compliance, and regulatory requirements.

Intertek provides fire fighting foam laboratory services for test low, medium and high expansion foam fire-fighting products. Fire foam testing is run to EN 1568 and ISO 7203 Standard specifications.

Most international safety organizations require that fire foam concentrates should be tested on an annual basis. Fire foam storage containers operating under harsh environmental conditions, such as ships, terminals, offshore platforms, and airports, should be routinely monitored for fire foam contamination and deterioration.

Fire-fighting foam testing meets compliance for:

  • IMO "Guidelines for the performance and testing criteria, and surveys of foam concentrates for fixed fire-extinguishing systems" (MSC.1/Circ. 1312-2009).
  • French Ministrère de l'Ecologie's "ARFFS foam concentrates Common Technical Specifications" (V1R3, 5/09/2003) prepared for the National Commission for Airport Safety Equipment.
