Self-testing emergency escape lighting


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if self-testing emergency escape lighting still needs a 3-hour discharge test each year??

We're looking at BS5266-1 and BS EN 50172 and we cant see where it mentions self-testing systems?

Any help / guidance much appreciated.

Yes, but they do that automatically and report if they fail (either to the control panel if an integrated network or via the coded LEDs on the fitting if self contained).

Just inspect them visually (& the control panel where fitted) monthly and act on the faults indicated (if any)
