It is a legal requirement that all non-domestic buildings must be kept safe at all times, even in the event of a Mains Power Failure. Therefore, all such buildings are required to have an Emergency Lighting back up system.
It is the duty of the person in charge of the building, to ensure compliance with this regulation. Further to this, these systems need to be inspected and maintained on a three monthly basis.
To ensure complete compliance, the Irish Standard IS 3217: 2013 must be adhered to. All compartments within the building must be illuminated in the event of a power failure, allowing for ease of egress, particularly so if the reason for evacuation is to escape a fire.
