ICEL Endorsement is a product quality assurance scheme for emergency lighting and emergency lighting components.
ICEL is the Industry Committee for Emergency Lighting. It is part of the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) and the committee is comprised of specialists in the field of emergency lighting. The ICEL Endorsement scheme is administered and managed by the LIA Laboratory.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF ICEL ENDORSEMENT?

Failure to do so can result in heavy fines and even imprisonment.
