Of course many developed country like US has strict standards that must be met for the safety of everyone so you must make sure you are in code compliance for your emergency lights in every large buildings. Most property managers of commercial buildings are very aware that sufficient exit lighting is in place for emergencies but rarely test the system after the initial installation.
