Note: Safety inspections of elevators throughout Minnesota will continue. Prior to an inspection we will contact owners to schedule or reschedule the inspection. We will not attempt to perform an inspection in a facility where owner/management has immediate health concerns for residents or patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. For help with questions, contact your regional inspector


Only licensed elevator contractors may install, maintain, alter, repair or test elevators and elevator-related devices in Minnesota. Permits are required for the installation, alteration and removal of elevators. Permits for repairs are limited to what is identified in rule.
