DOB Elevators

What is a Category 1 Inspection?

The Department of Buildings requires all elevator devices to undergo an annual inspection called a Category 1 test. Owners and managers are responsible for hiring an approved elevator inspection agency to perform the test, as well as an unaffiliated third party approved agency to witness the inspection. Category 1 tests must be performed and submitted to the DOB by December 31st of each year.
