  1. Are we able to carry out our own in-house emergency lighting testing ie: the annual discharge test as a member of staff/caretaker who does the regular checks would be able to test on a weekend at a fraction of the price some companies are quoting or do they need to have a qualification?
  2. Hi We have a BS5839 grade D system installed which should be tested once a week. How can i get the tenant to do this test other than standing next to him? Has
  3. Can you tell me the time interval for testing our fire alarm under the requirements of BS 5839 (2011). We test weekly alternating the testing points throughout our pavilion and we have an annual test of our extinguishers. We also had the fire alarm control box and emergency lights tested 6 months ago. However our contractor believes that the box and lights have to be tested on a 6 monthly basis. We checked with our Fire Authority Fire Prevention Officer and he said that he believed the test requirement to be 12 monthly. As the regulation seems to be constantly updated could you please advise me how often we need to test? It's only £45 cost but as we are a charity we want to be in full compliance but we do not want to spend money unnecessarily. Thanks
