Whatever international standards may be in place, there are always some customers who need to take particular measures to protect a particular building in compliance with current local legislation. Customers in this situation usually consult a fire-proofing professional to make a study of the building and draw up a fire-prevention plan. If this plan includes passive protective coatings, an operator properly qualified in this field must be appointed to apply them. This is why various countries worldwide offer vocational training for the application of such paints and varnishes. The appointed operator must certify that that the protective coating has been properly applied in accordance with the manufacturer’s technical instructions. The choice of a protective system may already have been made at the design or planning stage or indicated generically without going into the specific merits of individual products. Whatever the situation, it is necessary to assess the documentation provided by the manufacturer to accompany the chosen product, and the manufacturer is obliged to sell products that comply with the relevant standards and regulations and to be able to guarantee consistent quality throughout the entire production process.
