ICEL is the Industry Committee for Emergency Lighting. Its mission is to strengthen the industry and promote the benefits of good quality lighting. It represents all aspects of UK, EU and international legislation and standards at the highest level, whilst protecting the interests of the public and LIA ICEL Members. A division of the Lighting Industry Association, it specialises in providing support to the market for Emergency Lighting requirements.
Working with the Lighting Industry Academy ICEL also endorses various training courses. Find out how you can learn more about Emergency Lighting here
Maintaining Safety Standards
Products and services complying with ICEL requirements are designed to be effective in a building emergency, especially when the normal mains supply fails, when fast panic-free evacuation is absolutely essential.
This is why UK legislation demands reliable, good quality emergency lighting to ensure that escape routes are properly illuminated so that people can see to get to a place of safety.
In the UK, ICEL experts represent the industry on BSI product and application standards committees, various government consultative groups and works closely with the FIA (Fire Industry Association). Internationally, experts from ICEL contribute significantly to the development of amendments to existing standards and the drafting of new standards for emergency lighting products and applications.
