Fire Safety Compliance is Not a Choice
  The main purpose of building codes are to protect the public health, safety and welfare as they relate to the construction and occupancy of buildings and structures. Building codes place limits on flammable of materials used within a structure. Building and fire codes vary by locality, i.e. state, city, or municipalities, occupancy loads, type of construction, and specific use and fall under the individual State’s Life Safety Code.
  Fire Codes are directed at preventing fires and/or slowing the progression of fire allowing occupants time to escape. Fire codes complement the building codes. 
Building Code Requirement / Fire Code Requirement
  The authority having jurisdiction is responsible for enforcing building and fire codes. In all jurisdictions, fire codes require independent laboratory tests for each combustible material and it’s specific use. For instance in regard to fire retardant wood the ASTM E84, UL 723 (Steiner Tunnel) test procedure conducted on 2" x 6“ southern yellow pine (SYP) lumber is specific to that species of lumber only, whereas the flame spread rating would be different for another species such as douglas fir, spruce, etc. Fire codes require each species to be tested separately. Similarly, even if a test conducted on SYP lumber achieves a flame spread rating of less than 25, it does not mean it will achieve the same on different substrates such as SYP plywood, a separate fire test is required. In addition, specific use such as roof deck construction assemblies should to be tested under the UL1256 
   Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials referenced as UL 723 (now called ANSI/UL 723), ASTM E84, NPPA 255, and the UBC 42-1 are based on the same testing procedure (these four standards are equivalent) UL denotes Underwriter’s Laboratories, ASTM denotes The American Society for Testing and Materials, NFPA denotes National Fire Protection Agency and UBC denotes the Universal Building Code.

  Standardized test methods such as the ASTM E84 (UL 723. NFPA 255, UBC 42-1) for wood measure the performance of the fire retardant treatment for interior use. For exterior use, it must pass the ASTM E84 after the ASTM D2898 test method . The measure of the performance of fire retardant treatments is not a single test method. One Test does not do it All. Different materials and substrates and uses require different test methods such as fire retardant roofing materials - ASTM E108, UL790, fire retardant fabric - NFPA 701,  FAR 25.853 CAL SECT. 1237.1CAL 117-FFederal Standard 16CFR (FF-72 NY-NJ Port Authority, Fire retardant paper, cardboard, packaging - ASTM E162, Fire retardant PVC pipe, fiberglass composites, plastic, IMO R.A. 753(18) ASTM F1173.95 , Fire retardant Christmas trees - CAL ADMIN CODE, TITLE 19, PUBLIC SAFETY, SECTION 1254.3). 
  Building codes place limits on smoke generation that vary by state, city, municipalities, occupancy load, and type of structures. The ASTM E84/ UL723, ASTM D3806 standard requires a smoke development index not to exceed 450. The Test for Evaluating the Smoke Generation Characteristics of Solid Materials ( ASTM E662 / NFPA 258) optical smoke density (Ds). 
  Recommendation: Check your local building and fire codes

Field Tests
 Field tests should only be conducted under the supervision of the authority having jurisdiction. Generally, field tests are performed on samples to ensure that on site fire retardant treated material is in fact fire treated. A certificate of treatment should accompany the sample.
Demonstrations
Demonstrations and/or videos should be conducted by or witnessed by accredited independent third parties or fire officials. Self serving video demonstrations, without verification, are without merit..

Fire Retardant vs. Fire Resistant
Fire Retardant Liquid Coatings are chemical solutions applied to the surface of combustible substrates that stops or delays ignition and reduces the spread of flame along the surface when it is exposed to fire. 
An intumescent fire retardant coating, when exposed to flame forms a protective blister of carbon char creating a barrier between the flame and the combustible substrate, it separates the source of ignition from the fuel source .
Fire Retardant Vacuum Pressure Impregnation is a manufacturing process for fire retardant treating large quantities of lumber, plywood and timbers by forcing fire retardant solutions deep into the voids and cells of the wood. The moisture laden fire retardant wood is then Kiln Dried after Treatment (KDAT) 19% for lumber and timbers and 15% for plywood
Fire resistance refers to that property of materials and their component assemblies (fire rated assemblies) which prevents or retards the passage of excessive heat, hot gases or flames under conditions of use. A fire resistance rating is the time in hours or fractions thereof that materials or their assemblies will resist fire exposure as determined by fire tests (ASTM E119). For information on design of fire-rated wood frame wall, floor, ceiling assemblies (1 hour; 2 hour) go to www.awc.org
