Do porch lights need to be ip rated?

    Please can someone advise?
    I have an open porch/veranda which is felted and slated.
    It is unlikely that rain can get in regardless of direction but air moisture/fog/dew etc can as it is open to the elements.
    Do the lights need to be ip rated or not? I wanted some fisherman lights that hang from the porch ceiling but they do not appear to be ip rated.
    Thanks for any advice

    If it is open yes they should be IP rated.
