Periodical inspection of existing lifts

TÜV AUSTRIA Hellas provides services of periodical inspection of existing lifts.

The periodical inspection of an existing lift in certain time intervals has become an institution, so that it can be asserted that the lift is still working with safety.

More than 50% of the lifts that are in use today were installed more than 20 years ago. Existing lifts were installed to the safety level appropriate at that time. This level is less than today’s state of the art for safety. The Periodical Lifts inspections aim also to check the improvement of safety according the relevant international Standards (EN81-80) and the national legislation applied in each country.

The owner (administrator) of the building, where the lift is installed, has the obligation to assign to an Approved Inspection Body of his choice the periodical inspection and testing of the lift.
