Fire Fighting Foam Testing

As with the regular testing of fire-alarms as a safety precaution, conducting periodic sample testing on fire-fighting foams is a required step to ensure the foam is able to perform its important and potentially life-saving function.

Bureau Veritas has a global laboratory network staffed with master chemists and the latest techniques to provide fire-fighting foam testing for safety, compliance, and regulatory requirements.
Our fire-fighting foam tested according to the EN 1568 / ISO 7203 and IMO MSC.1/Cir.1312 regulations.

  • Our capability analyses include:
  • Foam quality
  • Specific gravity at 20 0C ASTM D 4052
