A flammability test, which is a modification of the present British Standard tests, is described and the results for twenty-two slow burning fabrics, each tested by five laboratories, are given. The results are analysed statistically and their variability discussed. There is evidence that there are differences between laboratories greater than can be accounted for by the inherent variation in the specimens of any one fabric. Types of performance requirements are considered.
