"...The nature of an emergency lighting system is such that one can never predict when it may be called upon to function. Consequently, although it is important that the system is correctly installed and initially operates satisfactorily, it is equally important that regular inspection and maintenance procedures are instituted to ensure that the system will be in a state of readiness for operation at all times..."
Excerpt from Australia/New Zealand Standard (AS/NZS) Emergency evacuation lighting for buildings.

Record faults with 240v mains supply to luminaires and repair as considered necessary.
Undertake AS/NZS 2293 testing which runs for a minimum of 90 minutes. (For minimal disruption to occupants, 90-minute tests are often carried out outside normal working hours).
