IFAB is an accred­it­ed test lab­o­ra­to­ry by DAkkS for DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005. The accred­i­ta­tion cov­ers fire tests for the effec­tive­ness of water based fire-fight­ing sys­tems in rolling stock, stan­dard and indus­tri­al build­ings, pub­lic places, stor­age areas, engine rooms and in tunnels/underground infra­struc­ture. It applies to fields that are stat­ed in the annex of the accred­i­ta­tion D-PL-19994-01-00e: mea­sure­ments of tem­per­a­ture, pres­sure and gas con­cen­tra­tions (O2, CO, CO2) in con­nec­tion with the fol­low­ing guide­lines for the exe­cu­tion of fire tests:
