BS ISO 23601:2009 Safety identification. Escape and evacuation plan signs

BS ISO 23601 is an International Standard which establishes design principles for displayed escape plans that contain information relevant to fire safety, escape, evacuation and rescue of the facility's occupants. These plans may also be used by intervention forces in case of emergency.

These plans are intended to be displayed as signs in public areas and workplaces.

BS ISO 23601 is not intended to cover the plans to be used by external safety services nor detailed professional technical drawings for use by specialists.
