The article discusses fire test results according to EN 45545-2  requirements, for various material groups which were tested at Instytut Kolejnictwa (Railway Research Institute) for Polish producers. Approach to evaluation of CCS equipment and electrical equipment to meet the requirements of fire protection are characterized. Areas of requirements of the EN 45545-2  standard are also presented, which are a challenge for the Polish railways, i.e. producers and research laboratories.
