evening all,
have booked up to do the bs5266 course in a few weeks,just wondering if anyone knows where i can get a copy of this to do some swatting up? the price ive seen on web is ridiculous to be honest,all secure pdf downloads,roughly£140+.

Unfortunately, that's what it costs.

bs5266 is available for free from main libraries on computer format. if you go to your local main library they will give you a personal ref number so you can access this remotely i.e. online from your own house.

As I recall part 1 and part 7 are the ones to read. there is also another standard you need but I forget the number.... bs 60597 or something!!! (that is an AJ Rimmer guess)

The Industry Committee for Emergency Lighting (ICEL) work closely with British Standards and this is one of their guidance documents which should give you enough information.

Using my library membership number on the Lancashire county library website, I can access BSI online and view most BS and BS EN standards. You used to be able to download pdf's, but that is no longer possible.

You can get many free software programs that allow you to save PDF's

I don't suppose you are an ECA member? You can subscribe to all BS digitally for around £90 a year.
