Emergency Lighting Compliance

Emergency Lighting Regulations in Ireland

According to the regulations, all buildings must have an emergency lighting system in place that is capable of providing illumination for a minimum of 3 hours in the event of a power failure.

The emergency lighting system must be capable of providing a minimum of 0.5 lux (a measure of light intensity) at the floor level in the means of escape routes and in the areas where people may congregate during an emergency.


Irish Fire Standard I.S3217 + A1:2017

With regards to testing, the Irish Fire Standard I.S3217 + A1:2017 states that emergency lighting must be subjected to testing four times per year. It must also be “flick-tested” at least once a month.

In addition, the regulations require that all exit signs and emergency lighting be properly installed and maintained and that they be clearly visible and in good working condition at all times.

Health and Safety Authority

The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) is the regulatory body responsible for enforcing the laws and regulations on emergency lighting in Ireland.

The HSA conducts regular inspections and can take enforcement action against employers who are found to be non-compliant with the regulations.
