    Evening all.

    Been a while since I made a post on here.

    Question:

    What is the title regulations/Acop that cover emergency lighting? - Concerning: Selection, erection, lux levels, where one is deemed needed etc.
    And are such regs readily available to view online in pdf, or is a specific book you have to buy?

    Need to do some homework on it.

    Regards

    Jamie

    When I needed to look at BS5266 a couple of years ago it was available to look at and print off some pages at my local library.

    5266-1 sums up the vast majority of other BS. You might also consider.BS9999 in relation the fire-fighting shafts for multistory buildings.

    Building regulations part B provide the most onerous of the emergency requirements. I’d start there if I was you.

    IHS portal offers BS but I think it’s a fee paid service.
