UIC564-2 International Union of Railway standard¡ªBrief

UIC564-2: Regulations relating to fire protection and firefighting measures in passenger carrying railway vehicles or assimilated vehicles used on international services. UIC-International Union of Railway, UIC-International Union of Railway international railway union is the world's largest railway international standards organization; it was founded in 1922, until 1982 has grown to 83 members. UIC headquarters in Paris, France.


The UIC564-2 Standard specification that the materials selected for the construction of vehicles should present the lowest possible combustion capacity. Combustion gases toxicity should be kept as low as possible. The use of insulation materials containing asbestos is prohibited. The fire-resistance of the materials used shall be tested by the railway concerned or by other bodies approved by the railways.
