The European standard BS EN 14470-1, passed in April 2004, defines the terms of the storage in safety cabinets (< 1cbm capacity). The cabinet's fire resistance has to be proven through the means of a fire test (type checking) in accordance with DIN EN 14470-1. Since the implementation of the BS EN 14470-2, similar regulations have to be obeyed in storing gas cylinders. The fire resistance is classified as G30 or G60.
