The Building and Fire Research Laboratory (BFRL) at the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), as well as its predecessor organization (National Bureau of Standards), has been contributing to the scientific knowledge of fires, buildings and a host of related topics for decades. BFRL produced a range of reports starting in the late 1930s that became basis documents for many of the standardized tests in use today. Since then, BFRL has published many groundbreaking reports and analyses, as well as providing input to documents produced by other agencies. The documents below are being provided to the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) via an exclusive agreement with NIST.
