Natural light requirement for a basement

Maybe I am behind the times but for the last 2 plans that were submitted for permits, this has been a requirement. If you are doing any finishing of a basement , we were just informed that we have to make sure that if the natural lighting requirement is not met with current windows or doors, we have to make sure to provide enough artificial light to make up the difference and will have to have someone to come in and measure the photometrics. This is new to all of us!

Has anyone else had this experience? Who measures the photometrics?

Thanks for the help
