This technical report gives a brief summary of the test methods that are in common use in the assessment of lethal and sublethal acute toxic potency, and other toxicity tests. It includes special observations on their relevance to real fire scenarios and gives recommendations on their use.
It advises which tests provide toxic potency data which is relevant to real fire scenarios, and which are suitable for use in fire hazard assessment and fire safety engineering.
One of the responsibilities of a technical committee is, wherever applicable, to make use of basic safety publications in the preparation of its publications.
