Fire testing beams

My company is currently renovating and extending an old pub. We have exposed a wealth of old beams that we would like to leave exposed. Will there have to be any fire tests carried out on the beams, or a sample of one or two, to comply with building regs. We have the ceiling above the beams sorted, so it's just the actual beams.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Steve this is not a fire safety matter it is more a structural engineer's advice is needed and you should be contacting your building control officer. As a fire safety officer my concern would be surface spread of flame which could be easily resolved depending on the material used in the beams.
