Elevator Inspections

New Elevators

New elevators are required to comply with all of the current requirements. The operation of new elevators without a valid Certificate of Compliance is not permitted.

An approved, qualified third-party inspector must inspect new elevators. Upon receipt of the inspection report indicating compliance with code, a Certificate of Compliance will be issued. There will be no charge for the initial Certificate of Compliance.

Elevators with Current Valid Certificates

Elevators that currently have a valid Certificate of Compliance and comply with the regulations and require no further action until the Certificate expires.  Once expired, another inspection is required for compliance.
