Elevator Safety Advisory Committee (ESAC)

The ESAC’s purpose is to advise and work with the Program on all matters regarding how the elevator industry and its stakeholders are affected. This includes the adoption of laws, rules, and codes that apply to conveyances, methods of enforcing and administering this chapter, and matters of concern to the conveyance industry and to the individual installers, owners and users of conveyances.

The Director appoints the Elevator Safety Advisory Committee members to 4-year terms. These members represent the industry as a whole and are whom you can communicate with when you have needs or questions. The committee meets on the third Tuesday of February, May, August, and November of each year.
