Latest version of lighting code published

31 January 2018

An updated version of the Lighting Commissioning Code L has been announced, designed to enable effective commissioning of complex installations.

Published by the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and the Society of Light and Lighting, the publication covers the latest advances in lighting technology and controls.

Advice on the stages, activities and actions required to complete the commissioning of installations is included in the document.

It covers standard and emergency luminaires, controls and interfaces with other services.

The publication has been updated to include LED-based luminaires and best practice in integrating luminaires, emergency lighting and controls into a single installation.

First published in 2003, the latest version of the code is designed to guide commissioning plans to ensure that the design intent is achieved at project completion, with users fully aware of the operation and benefits of the installation.

Author Sophie Parry said: "Commissioning Code L defines a process to minimise the risk of completed lighting design performing very differently to the original design concept.

"It also emphasises the importance of providing the customer with accurate operating and maintenance information, which may now exist as a building information management software model, rather than as traditional paper-based documentation," Ms Parry concluded.
