New Jersey has adopted a regulation eliminating performance of Routine (six month) inspections by the New Jersey’s licensed elevator inspectors. Under the change, checklists of maintenance performed according to the applicable six-month inspection section of ASME A.17.1 shall be maintained by a building owner, and the owner shall make such records available to the authority having jurisdiction. This essentially means that it is still required by the owner, but is no longer performed by the (DCA) Department of Community Affairs.

Vertical Systems Analysis can perform these elevator inspections required by all

building owners.

Further information regarding Inspection Requirements: N.J.A.C. 5:23-12

Routine and periodic inspections shall be made at intervals of not more than six months for man-lifts only, and at intervals not exceeding those set forth in Appendix N-1 of ASME A17.1 referenced in the most recent edition of the building subcode for elevators, escalators, dumbwaiters, and moving walks.

Our qualified and licensed staff will perform the inspection, as outlined in applicable Codes and sub-chapters. Vertical Systems Analysis (VSA) will sign and certify all required paperwork which accurately reflects our findings.

Vertical Systems Analysis looks forward to working with you and your team on all of your vertical transportation needs in 2020 and beyond. Call us today to get started on these six-month inspections in New Jersey or on any other project.
