Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Elevator Safety Act. Provides that the Office of the State Fire Marshal (rather than the Elevator Safety Review Board) shall authorize the issuance of elevator contractor's licenses, elevator mechanic's licenses, inspector's licenses, and inspection company licenses. Further provides that the Board no longer has the power to establish fee schedules for inspections of conveyances. Requires that the Board prescribe an inspection form, which shall be the only inspection form used by a person, company, or home rule unit licensed to inspect conveyances under the Act. Provides that all applications for a contractor's or inspection company license shall contain a copy of the Certificate of Authority to transact business in the State from the Secretary of State for corporations registered in another state, a certificate of good standing for corporations registered in Illinois, and an assumed name certificate issued by the Illinois county in which the business is located for a sole proprietor or partnership. Requires that all injuries caused by a malfunctioning conveyance be reported to the Office of the State Fire Marshal within 2 business days.
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the introduced bill with the following changes: removes provisions regarding a licensed inspector prescribing his or her own inspection procedures and regarding inspection company licensure.
