RISE has long experience of working with the automotive industry in various aspects of fire safety. To enable fireproof technology development, we are involved in research as well as testing and certification, accident investigation, risk assessment and education.
To mitigate the risks of fires in vehicles, RISE has developed test methods and certification rules to verify the function of fire suppression and fire detection systems that are intended to be installed in vehicle's engine compartments. A method for fire risk management and certification rule for verifying vehicle manufacturers' design and construction management to mitigate the risk of fire in vehicles has also been eveloped.
SP methods are used to verify the operation of the system and the technical requirements for components are based on internationally accepted standards. Certification is performed by RISE Certification
Manufacturers holding certificates for P marking have their system for production control, risk analysis and design routines audited annually by visits from RISE.
The following certification rules for P-marking vehicle fire safety are available:
- SPCR 183 - Certification rules for fire protection systems in engine compartments of buses and coaches
- SPCR 199 - Certification rules for fire protection systems in engine compartments of heavy vehicles
- SPCR 190 - Certification rules for vehicle manufacurers vehicle fire risk management
- SPCR 197 - Certification rules for fire detection systems in engine compartments of heavy vehicles
