Emergency

 The British standard BS5266 has been revised to conform with the European standard EN1838 (issued in the UK under reference BS EN1838/BS5266 part7) which specifies luminous requirements for emergency systems installed in premises. It also now calls up the luminaire product standard BS EN60598-2-22. It is our recommendation that reference be made to the latest version of the Approved documents.
