Abstract The analysis of existing domestic and European normative base of the classification parameters estimation of fire hazard for building materials is submitted in this article. The classification principles of fire hazard in European Union, decorated finishing materials roofing and floor covering materials are considered in the article. The complex methodological approach to estimate fire hazard of textile materials, taking into account the requirements, parameters and test methods depending on a scope and functional purpose is given. Thermoanalytical and spectral analysis which now are successfully used for identification purposes and control the input raw materials for making products are presented for both separate fire hazard test methods and physical and chemical methods. At present these methods are of great importance especially when using polymeric materials are fireproof as they realize the control of the indices, which are responsible for stability of making the products.
