BS6853 Fire test to railway vehicles- British Standard 

        BS6853 Fire test to railway component - Standard

BS 6853Code of practice for fire precautions in the design and construction of passenger carrying trains 

BS6853 Fire test to railway vehicles - Scope 

This British Standard makes recommendations in respect of fire safety for the design and construction of railway vehicles comprising or forming part of passenger carrying trains. The recommendations are applicable to new vehicles and also to substantial changes to existing vehicles

The recommendations in this British Standard cover:

a) The reaction to fire of materials;

b) The use of fire resisting barriers;

c) General aspects of design for fire safety. 

BS6853 Fire test to railway vehicles–Introduction 

The standard has been extensively revised to assist railway vehicle builders in interpreting guidance from the Safety Regulatory Authority on fire performance.It is envisaged therefore that this standard will have a wider use than the previous edition and reflects the concern of the Fire Standards Committee by upgrading the responsibilities of railway vehicle designers, builders and manufacturers, encouraging them to produce safer materials which release less toxic effluent in a fire, for future safety.
