Elevator Inspection and Compliance Testing in the San Diego Area

State safety inspection is a multipurpose activity. For a new device, the inspection serves to ensure that the device meets the Elevator Safety Orders that are being enforced at that time. It also verifies that the equipment installed complies with the design parameters. If the conveyance is new or altered, the certified installing company must generate the request.

An inspection is to be made when required by the California Code of Regulations, Title 8, Division 1, Chapter 4, Subchapter 6, Elevator Safety Orders (ESO).

Initial inspection

In San Diego, elevator inspections are mandated upon initial installation and after any alteration or modernization work, adhering strictly to ESO guidelines.

Annual Inspection

Per Labor Code section 7304, elevator inspections in San Diego must occur annually, though a two-year interval is allowed for elevators under a full maintenance service contract if deemed safe for operation. Certified inspectors, defined in section 3003, conduct these re-inspections.
