If you are an owner or property management of a building in an “open territory” i.e. Winnetka, Hinsdale, Roselle, etc it is up to ownership to have the elevators inspected with a 3rd party inspection firm. How do you find out if your municipality has an agreement with a 3rd party inspection firm? You can call the building department, look in the elevator and see who inspected the elevator or you can go to
If you go in the elevator and your certificate is issued by the City of Des Plaines that means that the City of Des Plaines is handling the elevator inspections. If you go into the elevator and see you have a certificate from the State of Illinois that means that you will most probably need to look into getting a 3rd party inspection firm to do a annual inspection on the elevator system. If you need information on elevator inspectors feel free to call Colley and ask and we can forward inspection companies information.
Before making an inspection appointment touch base with the elevator maintenance provider and make sure your testing is up to date. You don’t want to call for an inspection if you are 3 years behind completing annual testing of the elevator system.
