Elevators and Related Devices

The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry requests comments on its possible amendment to Minnesota Rules, Chapter 1307, "Elevators and Related Devices." The existing Minnesota Rules Chapter 1307 incorporates Chapter 30 of the 2012 edition of the International Building Code (IBC) and incorporates by reference several standards published by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). The Department is considering rule amendments to repeal Minnesota Rules, part 1307.0095, "Chapter 30 of the International Building Code; Elevators and Conveying Systems." The Department intends to incorporate Chapter 30 by reference in Minnesota Rules, Chapter 1305, "Adoption of the International Building Code" during its adoption of the 2018 IBC. The proposed rule amendments also add references to standards not previously incorporated in the existing rule, ANSI MH29.1-2012, Safety Requirements for Industrial Scissors Lifts and ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2017, Standard for Automotive Lifts – Safety Requirements for Construction, Testing and Validation. The Department is also considering any other amendments that are necessary to administer and enforce the Minnesota Elevator Code.
