Code Compliance

The Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators (ASME A17.1) requires that all elevators and escalators are to be equipped with a code data plate. The specifics of this requirement are found in Section 8.9 of the 2000 and later editions of the code to be used for inspections and tests. The requirement applies to all new, modernized and existing elevators, escalators, moving walks, dumbwaiters and material lifts. The requirements for code data plates became a part of the code in 1996.
