BS-5266-Emergency Lighting Completion Certificate

Does your emergency lighting system comply with current legislation, and can you prove it?
The following questions form part of the Emergency lighting completion certificate.
Do you know the answers for your system?

Are plans of the system available and correct?

The plans should show the location and details of the luminaires and other emergency lighting equipment?

Is a completion certificate available with photometric design data? Is a test log book available and are the entries up to date?

Do the luminaires conform to BS EN60598-2-22?if it is not marked

If it is not marked it is not compliant and judgement on its suitability should be made..

Does the installation conform to the good practice defined in BS 7671?

If a central power supply unit is used, does it conform to BS EN50171?

If it is not marked it is not compliant and judgement on its suitability should be made.

If an automatic test system is installed, does it conform to BS EN62034?

For centrally powered systems, is the wiring fire-resistant?

Are there luminaires sited at the “points of emphasis”?

System Documentation Guide

System Documentation Guide
The enforcing authority will look for evidence that systems have been designed, installed are being maintained correctly to minimise the risks too occupants in the event of a supply failure or fire.
BS 5266-1 recommends that this is achieved by documentation on the installed system supported by a logbook certificate to show that it operated correctly when tested.
If the original documentation is not available a substitute record can be provided by a competent engineers inspection. This can not be as complete as records correctly produced at installation but it will check the most important aspects of the emergency lighting system.
