    This Standard specifies requirements for the design and installation of emergency lighting and illuminated emergency exit signage systems for buildings. Central battery, single point and self-contained systems are included.

    The scope of this Standard does not include the following:
    (a) Constructional (including appearance) requirements for emergency luminaires and exit signs.
    NOTE: These requirements can be found in AS/NZS 2293.3.
    (b) Requirements for maintaining an emergency lighting installation once installed.
    NOTE: These requirements can be found in AS/NZS 2293.2.
    (c) Specification of the types of buildings or particular spaces that are required to be provided with emergency lighting.
    NOTE: For Australia this is set out in the NCC.
    (d) Requirements for emergency lighting of the interior of lift cars.
    NOTE: For Australia these requirements can be found in the NCC. The NCC contains deemed-to-satisfy provisions for lift car emergency lighting.
    (e) Requirements for high-risk task area lighting.
    (f) Requirements for stand-by lighting.
    (g) Requirements for emergency lighting on construction sites.
    NOTE: These requirements can be found in AS/NZS 3012.
