Due to increased scrutiny of emergency lighting and fire safety products, for the first time ever, the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) has created a new scheme to offer an opportunity for emergency lighting manufacturers to have their products individually endorsed by ICEL and the LIA.
The first company to achieve such certification is Emergency Lighting Products Limited.
The ICEL Product Endorsement scheme recognises products which have been developed and manufactured in accordance with the relevant safety directive and standards. Therefore, providing specifiers and end users with the confidence that the emergency lighting products they install have been scrutinised and have controlled manufacturing processes, with an independent verifiable assessment that the products have genuinely been subject to these checks.
Administered by the LIA Compliance Team, all approved products will be listed on the ICEL Product Endorsement Scheme register. These products will also be entitled to use a special mark to indicate the endorsement and a strict process of annual audits will ensure products maintain their status.
Emergency Lighting Products Ltd submitted their Emergency Escape/Exit Luminaire range for approval and after a meticulous evaluation process and documentation review, their product range have successfully passed the ICEL Product Endorsement Scheme criteria and now feature on the register.
When asked why Emergency Lighting Products Limited got involved in the scheme, David Wright, Managing Director of Emergency Lighting Products Limited comments:
“Emergency Lighting Products Limited are very proud to receive official ICEL Endorsement of our first range of twelve emergency lighting luminaires. The new ICEL scheme provides an opportunity to have products, the manufacturing facility and all of the supporting documentation independently assessed, giving our customers even more confidence when making a purchasing decision. ELP will certainly be submitting more luminaires and conversion equipment for assessment under the ICEL Product Endorsement Scheme.”
