The purpose of these rules is to assure that elevators and other automated conveyances are correctly and safely installed and operated within the state. This is done by authorizing and enforcing rules for the design, installation, operation and maintenance of conveyances, and by licensing mechanics and inspectors who work on these conveyances. Person (s) who erect, construct, wire, alter, replace, or maintain conveyances located in any public building must be licensed as an elevator or lift mechanic. These rules are adopted by the Elevator Safety Review Board pursuant to 21 VSA Chapter 3, Subchapter 2A.
