Emergency Light Testing

Emergency Lighting Testing involves testing the efficiency and effectiveness of any emergency lighting solutions you have installed.

Your Legal Obligations

Emergency lighting installation is covered by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) 2005 Order (FSO), in particular Section 14 (emergency exits and routes). Compliance with Emergency Lighting British Standard BS 5266, which defines the requirements for the appropriate installation and testing, would be accepted as proof of compliance with the FSO regulation.

Full Duration Emergency Lighting Testing

In addition to regular monthly tests (also known as a flick test) to be carried out by the person responsible for fire safety, yearly full-duration discharge tests are required.

Full duration tests involve checking that the lighting unit activates correctly in a simulated loss of power situation and stays on for the rated duration of the battery, usually 3 hours. After testing the luminaire is returned to its stand-by state.
