What are the servicing requirements for Emergency Exit Lights?

Under AS 2293.2 all Emergency Exit Lights must be inspected and tested at least every six months. Some insurance companies ask for more frequent inspections in their policies.

Part of the test is to isolate the light from mains power and check that it remains illuminated for at least 90 minutes. If the light fails the battery test, it may be possible to replace the battery, otherwise a new unit will be required.
