New Policy: Vertical Platform Lifts.
The purpose of this policy is to provide guidance to elevator mechanic[s] for the installation of vertical platform lifts. The policy allows the vertical platform lift can be plugged into the electrical supply by a cord if the mechanic follows the requirements of the policy, which include chair lifts that are permitted by the National Electrical Code (NEC). The policy was developed in response from requests from our stakeholders.
