Inspections : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread

Could someone inform me of the law in Illinois on how frequently an elevator must be inspected?

Illinois is a state where the Authorities Having Jurisdiction (e.g. Inspectors) are not always required. Cities are left with the responsibility and not all have Inspectors. What City is the elevator in? Inspectors who do these inspections mostly Inspect by the ASME A17.1 Code, the version is usually not the most recent... but the Inspections required are in the Code. It depends also on the date of installation and the duty of the elevator, e.g. freight, passenger.
