WPA | Benchmark Approved Treater

The WPA Benchmark Approved Treater (FR) scheme for wood-based materials relates to the factory process used to apply FR formulations.

Where a flame retardant is added during the manufacturing process for MDF, OSB or plywood then that process should be subject to factory production control (accredited by a notified body). The product should carry the CE mark and be accompanied by a valid Declaration of Performance when it leaves the factory.

Where the product is factory FR treated after manufacture (solid wood, some plywood) by a service treater, that company must also operate factory production controls which have been accredited by a notified body, alongside those of the company placing the product on the market, so as to maintain full traceability.

  • Treaters certificated under this scheme must use a WPA Benchmark Approved Formulation (FR).
  • The scheme provides independent third-party auditing and verification that the WPA Benchmark Approved flame retardant has been correctly applied.
