Who is authorized to perform work on my elevator?

The International Building Code and International Property Maintenance Code, as adopted and amended by New Castle County, require elevators and conveying systems to comply with ASME A17.1 – Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators and ASME A18.1 – Safety Standards for Platform Lifts and Stairway Chairlifts. The codes require a maintenance program of periodic safety inspections to be performed by a Qualified Elevator Inspector (QEI) and annual testing performed by a Delaware Licensed Elevator Mechanic. In accordance with Delaware Code, only Delaware Licensed Elevator Mechanics are authorized to perform any maintenance, repairs, alterations, or replacements on any elevator or conveying system.
