New Kitemark Scheme for Emergency Lighting Installers

Licence holders of the new Kitemark Scheme for emergency lighting installers, which has just been launched by BSI Product Services, provides companies with a range of invaluable tools for increasing their business success. Not the least of these is the opportunity to use the renowned Kitemark symbol, which is recognised by 88% of the UK adult population as the sign of a reputable company, in promotional and other business-related material.

Scheme licence holders are also listed on the and the BSI Product Services website, both of which are popular resources for companies and individuals seeking dependable suppliers of products and services.

Being a Kitemark Emergency Lighting installer confirms that a company understands and complies fully with the requirements of the latest standards and guidelines relating to emergency lighting, including BS 5266, Parts 1, 7, 8 and 10, as well as the Kitemark scheme criteria and has the ability to consistently deliver work of the highest quality.

This confirmation is an important aid for companies wishing to gain business from major specifiers in the public and private sectors, many of whom prefer or even specify Kitemark services and products.

The new Kitemark Scheme for emergency lighting installers complements the existing schemes for electrical installers and fire alarm installers. Like the fire alarm installers scheme, it adopts a modular format that allows companies to apply for certification in any or all of the areas of design, installation, inspection, as well as testing and maintenance. This means that installers are free to match their certification with their own particular areas of expertise.

In order to qualify for Kitemark status, companies undergo a detailed examination by inspectors from BSI Product Services, which includes an evaluation of work carried out on site. This process is repeated annually to ensure that standards are maintained, and that licensed companies keep up to date with the latest developments in the field.

During the evaluation process, the BSI inspectors provide advice and guidance as necessary. Many companies have found that this process has helped them to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations, thereby boosting profitability.
