Florida law requires that building owners must have their elevators inspected and certified annually. These instructions show you how to properly obtain this certificate.
Two factors will determine whether an inspection will count towards renewing a Certificate of Operation (CO): the type of inspection and when it was completed. The inspection must be either:
NOTE: Per the State of Florida, every five years, building owners are required to also do a CAT 5 Inspection, as per ASME 17.1.
You must use a third-party inspector (approved by the State of Florida) to complete the above inspection. The inspector must utilize the State of Florida elevator inspection form.
You must submit your passing inspection documents (signed by the inspector and the building owner/owner representative) to our elevator division to obtain your Annual Elevator Certificate.
NOTE: Any and all annual fees or outstanding fines must be paid to The City before receiving your annual certificate.
