Emergency lighting inspection and testing instructions

When testing emergency lighting the recommendations of the relevant British Standard should be taken in to account. Use our document to help you through the process.

Why do you need this?

Where emergency lighting is installed, monthly and annual checks should be completed in accordance with the dual numbered British Standard BS EN50172:2004/ BS 5266-8:2004.

Follow the simple step-by-step guide in the Emergency Lighting Inspection and Testing Instructions to help you achieve compliance. You can easily adapt the guide so that in-house staff can carry out the test.

Warning. If needed consult an electrician to establish the safest and best means of carrying out these routine tests.
