Board of Elevator Regulations Services

The Board derives its authority from Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 143, sections 62-71G. Accordingly, the Board has enacted its own regulations which are codified in title 524 of the Code of Massachusetts Regulations.

The Board of Elevator Regulations regulates the construction, installation, alteration and operation of all elevators in Massachusetts. The term "elevator" includes moving stairways, dumbwaiters, moving walks, material lifts, vertical reciprocating conveyors, and dumbwaiters with automatic transfer devices, wheelchair lifts, automatic people movers and other associated devices that are commonly included within the elevator industry. All elevator constructors, maintenance men, repairmen, and operators must be licensed by the Board.
