Elevator codes and regulations

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread

Hello, I am an elevator inspector and I'd like to know if I can find elevator codes and regulations anywhere on the web . I ask this because I want to compare them with the ones in my country (Croatia). I am especially interested in parts about the inspection procedure. Thanks.

Hello, you will not find the US elevator code anywhere on the internet. It is sold through ASME for about $350. Your best bet is to find womeone and ask specific questions. You'll likely get a variety of answers. I am mainly an independent elevator engineer, but inspect a couple of hundred a year all over the US. Sorry

ASME Codes

Thanks for your posting, I am about to take the state Jourypersons test and needed some material to study with. Any suggestions besides the $350 purchase for a code book? Do you have any links that might help? Thanks again

In Australia we use the "Australian Standereds AS1731" and now use the EN81 as well.. My friend from Croatia is staying with me for a few weeks, if you let me know what you would like I can send some back with Her. She lives in Pula and Studys in Zargreb if thats any help.. mic
