This standard refers to permanently installed lighting fixtures, defined as lighting controlled by a wall-mounted switch. These fixtures are inspected for:
- Physical security (e.g., loose or unmounted)
- Whether they provide adequate light for a bathroom or kitchen, or
- A kitchen or bathroom must have sufficient illumination. In most building codes, a kitchen and bathroom must have a permanently installed light fixture and cannot rely solely on a lamp or equivalent. If a permanent lighting fixture is installed, but the lighting is such that it would be difficult to navigate the space, this deficiency could be cited.
