Description: The purpose is to allow the renewal of temporary elevator mechanic licenses (category 09) to extend beyond two consecutive months and no more than six licenses issued in a twelve month period up to eighteen consecutive months and no more than eighteen licenses issued in an eighteen month period, due to an abnormally high rate of construction.

Individuals must meet the licensing requirements to qualify for a renewal extension up to eighteen months for a temporary elevator mechanic license. The extension period will become effective January 1, 2015, and shall expire July 1, 2016, or until rescinded, modified or is withdrawn by the director or his or her designee.
