According to IEC EN 61386 and PMA DO 9.21-4430  test procedures


DO 9.21-4430 evaluates flammability characteristics using a defined flame from a standard burner. The time before ignition, fire propagation behaviour and extinguishing time after removal of the heat source are all factors in evaluating the flammability of conduits for a Self-Extinguishing Classification
IEC 61386 uses the IEC 60695-2-11 glow wire test procedure for fittings and the IEC 60695-11-2 1 kW flame test for conduits to evaluate the flame Propagation behavior of the cable protection system allocating the classifications. Non-flame propagating or Flame Propagating.
