To ensure the safety of participants in sporting events, EN 12193 must be observed in addition to the provisions of EN 1838. Accordingly, a certain percentage of the illuminance of the appropriate lighting class (see chapter 220.127.116.11 "Sports facilities") is required for a controlled termination of a sporting event in case of lighting failure. These percentages must be applied to the types of sports contained in table.
Safety lighting for sports facilities
To continue a sporting event in case of lighting failure, the lighting level must match at least class III for the sport in question.
