Emergency Lighting Certificate


Electricity seems consistent until it is not. In the day, power outages can be managed but they are extremely hard to deal with at night. The lack of any backup plan will make you just sit in vain in case of any emergency power outage.

Being a building owner or manager, the legal responsibility of the safety of your tenants falls on your shoulders. You can’t have control over every aspect but it is vital to make sure you have all the legal requirements fulfilled to avoid any licit issues.

We, as a professional firm, value our customers’ satisfaction. This is why we feel obliged to provide them with salient and simple explanations too, along with our leading services.

What is an Emergency Lighting Certificate?

An Emergency Lighting Certificate or ELC is a document that shows the confirmation of the safety of the emergency lightings of a place or building for its tenants and employees. This certificate should be renewed and rechecked every few years.

Is an Emergency Lighting Certificate important and necessary?

Yes, an emergency lighting certificate is necessary because power outages can happen out of nowhere and it is required by the United Kingdom Law that any business satisfy and comply with the codes and safety regulations as there are specific responsibilities on the building manager regarding its tenants and workers.

If it is not held by the owner, it can result in legal troubles. Emergency lighting acts as a backup plan and helps you out a lot. Failure to show the certification at the time of need can make the building manager vulnerable to licit complaints. An emergency lighting certificate acts as proof that your emergency lighting system was inspected by a licensed engineer.

How do I get an Emergency Lighting Certificate?

An emergency lighting certificate can only be gained by an authorized electrical engineer that is NICEIC, NAPIT and ELECSA accredited. They will carry out a complete inspection of the building and then hand over the document to you once they are sure that it is entirely safe.
