NEXT WEEK’S LuxLive Digital Festival 2020 will feature an extensive educational programme on emergency lighting to help building owners and managers comply with the regulations. 

The first day of the free, two-day event – Wednesday 11 November – will have a dedicated track on emergency lighting, 

It will explore the best practice procedures for staying compliant with national standards and guideline.

Kicking off the day is Sophie Parry, technical applications consultant with the Society of Light and Lighting. Parry will run through the current obligations to ensure compliance in terms of emergency lighting standards, testing and maintenance, including the new ‘points of emphasis’ additions to the regulations. 

Following her is Kevin Stubbs and Stewart Langdown, both fellows of the Society of Light and Lighting. In a special LIA seminar, they’ll explore lighting control and emergency.
