Please can you tell me if our company is required by law to have luminous fire call point signage above each call point?

If so, please can you state the relevant legislation.

Many Thanks.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 is about Fire Risk Assessment and the order is drafted with this in mind.

Article 13 which deals with fire alarms, which reflects this, it starts with "Where necessary" and 13 1b any non-automatic fire-fighting equipment so provided is easily accessible, simple to use and indicated by signs. So if it is necessary a sign should be supplied and if the lighting is very poor a luminous sign may be required, this will be decided by the FRA. However the lighting and emergency escape lighting should be of a standard that this situation does not occur.
