What is an Emergency Lighting certificate?

An Emergency Lighting Certificate is a document that confirms emergency lighting systems in a building comply with safety standards. This certificate is issued after a thorough inspection and testing of emergency lighting installations, ensuring they function correctly in case of an emergency, such as a power outage.

It verifies that the lighting is adequate for safe evacuation and meets legal requirements, ensuring the safety of occupants. The Emergency Lighting Certificate is crucial for commercial buildings and public spaces, where stringent safety regulations apply.

When is an emergency lighting certificate required?

An Emergency Lighting Certificate is required following the installation, inspection, or periodic testing of emergency lighting systems within a building.


This certification is crucial for ensuring compliance with health and safety regulations, which mandate that emergency lighting must be fully operational to facilitate safe evacuation in case of an emergency or power failure.


It's typically needed for commercial buildings, residential complexes with communal areas, and public spaces to certify that the emergency lighting meets the required safety standards and is in good working order.

In the UK, an Emergency Lighting Certificate can be issued by a qualified electrician who is specifically trained and certified to assess emergency lighting systems.

Guidance for Emergency Lighting System

In the UK, the requirement for installing and upkeeping an adequate emergency lighting system in premises is dictated by specific fire safety legislation. According to the British Standard BS 5266-1, emergency lighting must be installed if a risk assessment indicates a need for it, ensuring compliance with specified minimum illuminance levels and safety signage recommendations outlined in sections 5.3.2 and 5.3.3 of the standard.

Emergency Lighting System Maintenance

The responsibility for operating the emergency lighting system rests with the premises' designated responsible person. BS 5266-1, Section 12 advises routine system tests, including monthly functional checks and annual full-duration tests to ensure all components work correctly, along with documenting any failures and repairs in a logbook.


TEST Electrician can offer guidance on these procedures, ensuring compliance with fire safety regulations. In case of system failures, repairs should only be made by a qualified professional, as stated in the standard.
