Cancelling Scheduled Elevator Inspections & Acceptance Test Re-Inspection Fees

 The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Division of Professional Licensure Office of Public Safety and Inspections has recently issued an advisory regarding a change to the Massachusetts Elevator Regulations, 524 CMR 1.10 (4) regarding canceling scheduled inspections and change to OPSI Policy regarding fees for acceptance test re-inspections.
 
Effective June 1, 2018 all types of inspections canceled by the owner or contractor within ten days of the scheduled inspection will result in forfeiture of all fees and a requirement to refile for said inspection.   Owners or contractors cancelling inspections within ten days of the scheduled date are required to re-submit application and payment in order to have the elevator re-scheduled.
 
Due to the large number of elevators requiring re-inspections for acceptance tests the department will charge a $400 fee for all acceptance test re-inspections. Effective May 1, 2019 a $400 fee will be required for each re-inspection needed to pass an acceptance test.  Prior to May 1, 2019 the department did not charge for the 1st re-inspection.

Owners and contractors are advised to pre-inspect elevators prior to submitting a request for inspection, so that a re-inspection is not necessary.
