This rulemaking adopts amendments to the elevator rules to correct fees under chapter 296-96 WAC, Safety regulations and fees for all elevators, dumbwaiters, escalators and other conveyances. The adopted amendments include the following: (1) Correct the fee effective dates from July 1, 2024, to January 1, 2024; (2) Remove obsolete fees; (3) Correct the fee amount for inspecting and testing of elevators used for construction; and (4) Modify rules for clarity and general housekeeping, such as renumbering, formatting, etc. On October 18, 2022, L&I adopted two, 8.5% increases to all elevator fees effective January 1, 2023, and January 1, 2024 (WSR 22-21-118). The fee increase supports funding for a new Conveyance Management System. As a result of an inadvertent error, some of the fee effective dates were incorrect. The fees affected include permits, inspections, and other services for conveyances. This rulemaking adopts the corrections, along with other housekeeping amendments.
