SAFETY INSPECTIONS

State of Maryland

State of Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing & Regulations (MD DLLR) requires that elevators have the annual safety or pressure test and, if applicable, a 5-year full load test.Each owner is responsible for ensuring that each elevator unit has a valid certificate of inspection issued by the Commissioner demonstrating that it has been inspected. Elevator units are not permitted to operate without a valid certificate of inspection.

Currently State law requires that periodic annual inspections be performed on all elevator units and the owner of an elevator unit has the option of contracting with an authorized third party inspector or utilizing State resources to comply with the annual inspection requirement. As of July 1, 2009 State inspectors will no longer perform periodic annual inspections on privately owned elevator units. The owner must hire an authorized third party elevator inspector to perform the required periodic annual inspection.

State of Delaware

The state of Delaware has adopted AMSE A17.1 Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators, requires a Maintenance Control Program which is provided by Delaware Elevator. The code requires periodic elevator inspections to be performed by a 3rd party Qualified Elevator Inspector. The responsibility to hire a 3rd Party Inspector is solely that of the owner or owner’s representative. Delaware Elevator strongly suggests that building personnel contact an Independent 3rd Party QEI elevator Inspector to begin performing the code required periodic inspections if not completed to date (Per John Livesay / Corporate Service Operations Manager update July 2015).
