An issue in emergency lighting appears to be the growing discrepancy between designed and installed schemes when it comes to signing off the system.

 

In a few recent cases, the lighting installed by the contractor is not as designed and therefore the lighting designer cannot sign off the certificate – because in many countries providing emergency lighting is a legal requirement.

 

This opens up the side issue of commissioning to be undertaken to proper guidance and rules.

 

Does the solution lie in more, clearer rules or better adherence / enforcement?
