Application of adopted standards and rules.

Conveyances are required to comply with rules and standards that:
(1) Were in effect at the time of the original installation; or
(2) Were in effect at the time of any alteration;
(3) Apply to new and existing elevators (see ASME A17.1/CSA B44 1.1.3); and

(ii) The applicant shall provide the certificate of certification for the device or system evaluated by an AECO.
(iii) The department has the final authority regarding acceptance of any item in ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7. The department may remove approval if a design has changed or unforeseen or undisclosed information is obtained.
(iv) The department will post the specific ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7 AECO certificate including exceptions agreed upon. At that time the certificate and exceptions become part of the adopted rule in the state of Washington and not subject to a variance process.

Inspection fees.

The initial inspection of construction, alteration or relocation of a conveyance is included with the permit fee. Once the department has approved the initial installation of the conveyance a temporary 30-day operating certificate will be issued. Prior to the expiration of the 30-day temporary operating certificate the application for an annual operating certificate and the appropriate fees shall be paid to the department. Once the department has received the appropriate fees and application the owner will be issued the first annual operating certificate. The owner or owner's representative will receive an invoice from the department for renewal. The owner is required to renew the annual operating certificate yearly.
The following inspections require an additional inspection fee:
(1) Reinspection. If a conveyance does not pass an initial inspection and an additional inspection is required, the fee for each reinspection of a conveyance is $134.10 per conveyance plus $65.10 per hour for each hour in addition to the first hour.
The department may waive reinspection fees.
(2) Inspecting increases in the height (jumping) of personnel and material hoists.
The fee for inspecting an increase in the height (jumping) of each personnel hoist or material hoist is $134.10 plus $66.80 per hour for each hour in addition to 2 hours. This fee is for inspections occurring during regular working hours.
The permit holder may be allowed to operate a hoist prior to the jump inspection if:
(a) The electrical limits will not allow the lift to operate above the previously inspected landing; and
(b) The state elevator inspector is contacted, agrees and can schedule an inspection within 3 days.
(3) Variance inspections.
(a) The fee for an on-site variance inspection is $201.30 per conveyance plus $66.80 per hour for each hour in addition to 2 hours. This fee is for inspections occurring during regular working hours.
(b) The fee for a variance that does not require an on-site inspection is $66.80 per conveyance. The individual requesting the variance shall provide the department with pictures, documentation, or other information necessary for the department to review the variance. The department may conduct an on-site variance inspection to verify the information provided or if it determines that an inspection is necessary. If an on-site variance inspection is performed, the fees in (a) of this subsection will apply.
(4) "Red tag" status fee. The annual fee for a conveyance in "Red tag" status is $33.20.
Note:
The department shall be provided with written approval from the building official, indicating that the conveyance is not required for building occupancy, when applying to have the conveyance placed in voluntary red tag status.
(5) Decommission inspection. The fee for performing a decommission inspection is $66.80. Once the decommission inspection has been performed and approved, the conveyance will no longer require annual inspections until such time that the conveyance is brought back into service. Prior to operating the conveyance, a new inspection and annual operating permit shall be obtained.
(6) Voluntary inspections by request. The owner or potential purchaser of a building within the department's jurisdiction may request a voluntary inspection of a conveyance. The fee for this inspection will be $134.10 per conveyance and $66.80 per hour for each hour in addition to 2 hours plus the standard per diem and mileage allowance granted to department inspectors. The owner/potential purchaser requesting the voluntary inspection will not be subject to any penalties based on the inspector's findings.

Definition of inclined private residence elevators.

"Inclined private residence elevator" means a device constructed and operated for transporting people or property from one elevation to another at an angle of inclination of seventy degrees or less from the horizontal. Essentially, it is a car or platform traveling on guides or guiding members in an inclined plane.
Note:
For purposes of this chapter, devices installed indoors on stairways that utilize chairs to carry passengers are not considered "inclined passenger elevators."

296-96-24760
Suspension means.

(1) Lifts and counterweights shall be suspended by steel wire ropes. Only iron (low carbon steel) or steel wire ropes with fiber cores, having the commercial classification of "elevator wire rope" may be used for the suspension of lifts and for the suspension of counterweights.
(2) The minimum number of hoisting ropes is:
(a) Three .5 in. ropes for traction elevators; and
(b) Two .5 in. ropes for drum type elevators.
(3) Fastenings shall be by individual tapered babbitted rope sockets or by other department-approved types.
(4) The rope sockets shall be of a type which will develop at least 80 percent of the breaking strength of the strongest rope to be used in such fastenings. U-bolt type rope clips (clamps) shall not be used for load line fastenings.

(3) A shut-off valve shall be installed in the pit.
(4) Each pump shall be equipped with a relief valve and all relief valves shall be:
(a) Located between the pump and check valve in a bypass connection;
(b) A type that cannot be shut off from the hydraulic system; and
(c) Preset to open at a pressure not greater than 125 percent of the working pressure at the pump.
EXCEPTION:
Relief valves are not required for centrifugal pumps driven by an induction motor when the shutoff or maximum pressure that the pump develops is no more than 135 percent of the working pressure at the pump.
(5) A check valve shall be installed that will hold a car and its rated load at any point whenever a pump stops or pump operating pressure drops below the required minimum.
