DOB: Periodic Elevator Inspections

Beginning next year, building owners must hire a DOB-approved elevator agency to perform periodic elevator inspections. Previously these inspections were performed by elevator agencies on behalf of DOB. See the attached Service Notice for more information.

As always, stay in touch if you have questions or require additional information.
