Reminder Regarding Elevator Inspection Certificates

The Office of Public Safety and Inspections reminds building owners that all elevators in the Commonwealth must have a current elevator certificate posted in a conspicuous place in or near the cab of the elevator.  According to the state many owners, or their elevator companies are not posting the most current certificate in their elevator.
 
After an elevator has passed an annual, new installation or modernization inspection the Office of Public Safety and Inspections issues an inspection certificate via email to the property owner, and to the owner's elevator company. The owner of the property in which the elevator is located is responsible for posting the current certificate at the completion of the inspection.
 
In order to ensure that certificates are e-mailed to owners, it is essential  the state has current owner information in our database.  The Office of Public Safety and Inspections encourage owners to make sure that e-mails are kept up to date in their database by submitting a Notice of Updated Owner Information any time e-mail or other owner information changes.   IPS Portal users have the ability to print Elevator Certificates through the IPS Customer Portal.
 
Please be advised that the Office of Public Safety and Inspections will be performing compliance visits to ensure that current elevator certificates are posted.
