1.1 The durability of a fire-retardant treatment of wood under exposure to accelerated weathering is covered by this standard. It is intended for fire-retardant treatment of wood by pressure impregnation, rather than simply by surface coating.

1.2 Two alternative methods are described, A and B, both suitable for application to a test specimen prior to subjecting that specimen to an appropriate fire test. These methods are applicable to treated wood products or assemblies thereof. The test specimens will be in the form of, or suitable for fabrication into, fire test specimens.
