Each Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) adopts ASME 17.1 specific to the code year of their choice; they additionally may adopt parts or all of the code as it is published for that year. Contact your AHJ to learn the ASME 17.1 rules for operating your vertical transportation. To learn more about the ASME 17.1 guidelines, please directly visit ANSI where you can also purchase a copy of the Safety Code.

In addition, all elevators and buildings must meet federally-mandated Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. For a detailed guide about the rules and specifications for elevators and accessibility lifts, please visit the United States Access Board’s ADA standards.
