Purpose: Specialty compliance fee increases elevators (including material lifts), FAS and contractor registration.

Chapter 296-86 WAC, Regulations and fees for freight and passenger elevators, manlifts, dumbwaiters, escalators, moving walks, automobile parking elevators, personnel elevators, and other lifting devices, state-initiated proposed amendments to chapter 296-86 WAC were made to increase the fees in this chapter by 4.45%. The 4.45% figure was obtained from the Office of Financial Management and is the maximum allowable fiscal growth rate factor for fiscal year 1997. All fee increases have been rounded down to the nearest quarter of a dollar. It has been several years since elevator fees have been increased, therefore, these increases are needed to help offset increased program operating costs.

In addition to the elevator fee increases, other state-initiated amendments were made to incorporate material lift fees (chapter 296-93 WAC) into chapter 296-86 WAC. These state-initiated amendments do not establish additional compliance requirements.
