BS 8414 is a 2002 British Standard describing test methods to assess fire safety of cladding applied to the external face of a building. The latest version was issued in 2015.

The two-part standard describes methods for testing the cladding in two different setups, and has been ported to standards in countries such as Australia and the UAE.[1]
