Some buildings are equipped with emergency power lighting, also known as auxiliary lighting. There is no requirement for these fixtures to be installed under this inspection protocol; however, if they are installed, they must meet the following standards:
- The auxiliary lighting needs to remain functional when tested.
- Determine if the mounting bracket is intact and free of damage.
- Determine if evidence indicates a component was installed but is missing during the inspection.
- Is the auxiliary lighting fixture damaged and hanging loose from its mount? (i.e., it is not securely mounted).
- If the component is both an exit sign and an auxiliary light, any conditions should be cited separately under each item’s standards.
