When installed in a luminaire, LED tube lamps (TLEDs) with integral battery backup do not create an emergency lighting luminaire. TLEDs with an integral battery backup are a user-replaceable item that is not permanently installed or fixed in place. Accordingly, they are not considered as part of the building infrastructure to be relied upon to provide illumination in an emergency situation. This type of lamp could subsequently be replaced by a standard fluorescent tube during normal facility maintenance and outside of any fire marshal regulatory oversight. This construction would be non-compliant with ANSI/UL 924 and NFPA 70 (NEC), the Standard for Safety for Emergency Lighting and Power Equipment.
