3 Type testing
3.1 Request
The manufacturer shall submit to the body
accredited to carry out verification of conformity of
the portable extinguishers to prEN 3-1, prEN 3-2,
EN 3-3, prEN 3-4, prEN 3-5:
a) Technical documentation in triplicate relating
to the portable extinguisher to be verified; this
documentation shall comprise mainly:
1) one complete set of drawings clearly
characterizing the model;
2) an extract from the company register;

3) an identification sheet of the extinguishing


agent giving its physical and chemical
characteristics;
4) an explanatory, note on the type of heat
treatment and welding and assembly process
the cylinder has undergone;
5) certificates relating to the cast analysis of
the steels supplied for manufacturing the
cylinders;
6) part attestations of conformity to prEN 3-1,
prEN 3-2, EN 3-3, prEN 3-4, prEN 3-5 drawn
up by a n accredited body together with test
reports if they already exist for certain
requirements.
b) The prototypes necessary for carrying out the
verifications.
3.2 Conformity verification tests
The accredited body shail assess conformity of the
portable extinguisher to prEN 3-1, prEN 3-2,
E N 3-3, prEN 3-4, prEN 3-5. For this, it shall carry
out the test programme specified in annex A of this
standard. After this test programme has been
carried out, it shall supply an attestation of
conformity to prEN 3-1, prEN 3-2, EN 3-3,
prEN 3-4, prEN 3-5 and the test report in
conformity with E N 45001 a model of which is given
in annex B.
3.2.1 Particular requirements
3.2.1.1 For the heat treatment, welding and
assembly methods, the type test may be carried out
per model or per family of cylinders.
Cylinder model means vessels of the same design
and same thickness fitted with the same accessories
and made of sheet of identical specifications.
Cylinder family means cylinders from the same
factory, of the same diameter and only differing
length. Only the longest cylinder shall be verified.
3.2.1.2 The manufacturer shall make available to
the accredited body a batch of 50 extinguishers from
which the number of extinguishers necessary for the
verification shall be taken. The extinguishers
selected shall be regarded as prototypes.

4 Control during manufacture


4.1 General
In addition to any scheme of quality control, which
should include appropriate tests to ensure that all
extinguishers, including filling packs, are charged
with extinguishing agent of the performance and
specification as tested in the type approval,
cartridges and extinguishers complying with this
standard shall be produced according to the
production testing scheme of this section.

4.2 Non-destructive testing


4.2.1 AU extinguisher bodies shall be tested for
resistance to test pressure and shall meet the
requirements according to 6.3 of EN 3-3:1994.
All fittings (excluding pressure relief devices and
fittings designed to be ruptured on operation)
subject to pressure shall comply with the resistance
to test pressure requirements of EN 3-3 and
prEN 3-5. Compliance shall be demonstrated by
pressure testing components selected from
production using an adequate sampling plan
NOTE Fittings include closures, valves, hose assemblies. The
fittings need not be tested as part of the complete extinguisher
but the test equipment connection and blanking features must
replicate the adjacent components.

4.2.2 All gas cartridges shall be tested for resistance


to test pressure and shall meet the requirements
according to clause 9 of EN 3-3:1994.
4.3 Destructive testing
4.3.1 The manufacturer proceeds to the minimum
burst pressure and to the mechanical strength test
as defined in EN 3-3. The number of tests taken
shall be in accordance with the Table 1 below.

than 500, shall be tested for minimum burst
pressure and shall comply with the requirements
according to clause 9 of EN 3-311994.
4.3.3 One gas cartridge in every 1 O00 or one in each
batch, whichever is the smaller number, shall be
tested for minimum burst pressure and shall comply
with the requirements according to clause 9 of
EN 3-3~1994.
4.3.4 If any item fails to meet the minimum
requirements, further samples shall be taken in
accordance with the Table 2 below and the test
against which failure was recorded shall be
repeated.

4.4 Records
The manufacturer shall retain at least the records
below:
a) the certificates mentioned in 3.1;
b) the documentation on heat treatment, where
appropriate;
c) the complete list of extinguishers
manufactured, together with their identification;
d) the results of the non-destructive tests carried
out within the framework of the quality system;
e) a written undertaking stating that the welding
methods used are identical to those used for the
cylinders submitted to the type tests;
f) the results of the destructive tests carried out
within the framework of the quality system.

5 Verification of production
5.1 Quality system conforming t o EN 29002
If a quality system conforms to EN 29002, its
satisfactory application both generally and on the
production line shall be verified by quality auditors
authorized to undertake the periodic checks
required.
The technical auditors shall:
- verify the documents listed in 4.4;
- sample the finished products and carry out
inspections and tests to ver& the conformity of
the extinguishers manufactured to prEN 3-1,
prEN 3-2, EN 3-3, prEN 3-4, prEN 3-5 and to the
certified prototypes.
The technical audits shall be carried out twice a
year. Other visits may be made if they are justified.
Where necessary, and where there is a major failure
of the quality system, the requirements of 6.2.1 can
be applied for each production batch.

guarantee that the requirements of prEN 3-1,
prEN 3-2,E N 3-3,prEN 3-4,prEN 3-5are met;
- during each visit, verify the documents listed
in 4.4;
- sample the finished product and carry out
inspections and tests that they consider
necessary.
5.2.2 The frequency of the operation called for
in 6.2.1 shall be determined according to national
rules.
5.2.3 The actions called for in 5.2 shall only be
allowed during a transition period of 5 years from
the date of publication of this standard.

The manufacturer shall take the necessary


corrective action, as a function of the
non-conformities found on:
-the products in stock;
-the products in the course of production;
-the products distributed for sale.
The accredited body or the national bodies shall
approve the programme for dealing with
non-conforming products and shall follow up the
corrective actions undertaken.

6 Product certification
A certification body may supply the product
certification on the basis of attestation of conformity
following a type test. On the basis of the attestation
of conformity following control during manufacture
following 5.1 and 5.2, a certification body may
supply a mark of conformity which shall be applied
to the portable extinguishers.

Plan for the laboratory, for tests and

--``,`-`-`,,`,,`,`,,`---

NOTE See clause 3.2.

The following plan details the testscontrols as per


prEK 3-1,prEN 3-2,prEN 3-4and prEN 3-5,which
the test house carries out with fire
extinguishers/and their component parts for
approvals. Moreover, the number of the individual
tests/controls and the number of the necessary fire
extinguishers and/or tests is given, which can or
must be combined with the same fire extinguishers
or their components.
Combinations are shown only on one h e . They are
not repeated with the numbers named there with
which they are combined.

The sequence of the tests with combinations is


determined by the practical progress of the
testslcontrols.
As a rule, two attempts are carried out for each of
the various tests/controls in accordance with the
plan, so long as it is not laid down otherwise in EN 3
or in this plan. If the result of one of the tests is
negative, a second series of tests can be carried out.
There must then be no negative result.
If for different types of extinguisher, the
manufacturer uses the same components, the
results are valid for all types.
The laboratory shall decide the valid results
(i.e. tests 21 and 24).
