Fire resistance tests according to European standards provide a direct field of application (DIAP). In addition to the direct area of application, it is also possible for many construction products to adjust the area of application based on European standards, namely the EXAP or Extended field of application.
An additional advantage of the EXAP standards is the possibility to have the output classified. For those products for which CE marking is possible, the extended classification can be used as a Declaration of Performance (DoP).
An EXAP cannot yet be drawn up under accreditation. However, the party that draws up an EXAP must demonstrate demonstrable affinity by having performed at least one of the tests for which the EXAP is written.
