IEC 60695-7-2:2011 gives a brief summary of the test methods that are in common use in the assessment of 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 that are relevant to real fire scenarios, and which are suitable for use in fire hazard assessment and fire safety engineering. This first edition of IEC 60695-7-2 cancels and replaces the first edition of Technical Report IEC/TR 60695-7-2 published in 2002.
