BS 5266 says where national regulations do not apply the following checks shall be completed:

Daily:
Visual confirmation of LED indicators, central battery cubicles, self-contained units etc.
Monthly:
Duration testing (Partial Duration)
Check condition of fittings, present? Clean? Functioning correctly?
Annually:
Duration testing (Full Duration)

The reason for partial duration on the monthly test is to limit the risk posed by draining the batteries do. If there was a true emergency just after you had just completed a full duration test the emergency lights would not have had sufficient time to fully recharge.

BS5266 says a log book shall be kept on the premises in the care of a responsible person appointed by the occupier/owner and shall be readily available for examination by any duly authorized person.

The log book shall be used to record at least the following information:-

  1. Date of commissioning including certificates
  2. PIR dates
  3. Dates & brief service details, inspection or test
  4. Dates & brief details of any remedial works
  5. Dates & brief details of any alterations to the system
  6. If any auto test devices exist, the main characteristics and the mode of operation shall be described.
