I would like to think that the designer of the E/L system would have given this certificate (Annex C) filled in and signed as appropriate, out with the job before it started, or is it one of these trendy build and design after jobs? Installation conformity signature to follow on completion.
Annex D periodic inspection and test issued on commissioning and subsequent I&T.
Samples, endorsed specimen, may be found on the NICEIC website but not sure if they have been updated as yet to reflect BS 5266-1:2005

Regards

BOD

Come on Guys, get with the programme:

BS 5266.Part 1 - 1999 is withdrawn, you need the 2005 version.

As a point of interest, you will also be required to declare your qualifications (note, not competence) if you wish to sign one in anger.

The process requires each party ie designer, installer and person veryfiying the installation to declare conformity. (They could of course be the same person)

As Bod highlighted you should be in possession of the design component prior to commencing work if you are the installer

John,

BRITISH STANDARD BS 5266-1:2005

Emergency lighting — Part 1: Code of practice for the emergency lighting of premises.

This part of BS 5266 is intended for use in conjunction with BS EN 1838:1999/BS 5266-7:1999 and BS EN 50172:2004/BS 5266-8:2004.

This part of BS 5266 gives recommendations and guidance on the factors that need to be considered in the design of, and the installation and wiring of, the electrical emergency lighting systems specified in BS EN 50172/BS 5266-8 in order to provide the lighting parameters specified in BS EN 1838/BS 5266-7. Guidance on the illumination needed for safe movement, and recommendations for lighting in areas with fixed seating, are also given.

BS 5266 is not applicable to dwellings; its provisions, however, are applicable to common access routes within multi-storey dwellings.

The regulatory reform (fire safety ) order and Building regulations AD-B will also be relevant along with other sector specific requirements and also recognition of the safety signs and signals regulations.

Regards

OMS

Thanks for all the replies.I have since discovered during an assesment visit that the small restaurant, where I was asked to install the lighting, has a flat above which shares the supply.It therefore is classed as a dwelling and as a consequence I cannot carry out the work because it is outside the scope of D.I.
It has to be carried out by an Approved Contractor.

Thanks Anyway.

I think you need to get a copy of BS 5266.Part 1 2005 along with Parts 7 and 8. Particularly, you might want to look at Annexe D of Part1

Usually, the operational tests and duration tests are recorded in the Clients log book via the model form in the standard above.

Personally, I used to have an excel spreadsheet to track all the tests, replacements etc for a particular building which then exported to a suitable form to give to the client - essentially an update page for his log book.

Don't forget to the ask the designer to supply the photometric design data!

Does BS 5266 apply to a house with 3 flats in it ?

I gather it does apply to blocks of flats but unsure if an old victorian house split into 3 flats needs emergency lighting.
