The Department updates all inspection results and posts them online, via the Buildings Information System (BIS). Building owners must keep a record of the inspection certificates in each elevator. If the inspection certificates are kept in the building management office, there must be a sign in the elevator indicating the location of the inspection certificates.
Upon request, inspections and tests can be expedited for high-rise buildings, schools, buildings involving the disabled and the elderly, single elevator buildings or elevators serving one section of the building.
