Emergency lighting should operate automatically and give adequate light to enable a safe evacuation of the building, and employers are responsible for ensuring the upkeep of these systems.


At Circuit Electrical Testing, we are committed to ensuring that our customers have a full overview of and confidence in the intrinsic safety of their emergency lighting installations.


We provide a professional Periodic Inspection service in line with the requirements of Emergency Lighting Regulations BS5266.


  • We can work out of hours to minimise disruption, at no extra cost
  • We provide certification detailing our inspection procedures and outlining any issues that may arise.
  • We can carry out remedial repairs where required





There are a range of requirements on
regular visual checks for emergency
lighting systems. However, on completion
of the third year after installation,
emergency lighting units must be
assessed by a qualified electrician.
Thereafter, this check should be carried
out annually.
