Elevator owners may now submit service maintenance contract verifications on a standardized form that includes all information necessary for the exemption from the annual inspection requirement. Although the new form, DBPR Form HR 5023-060, is optional, all written verifications must include the information collected on that form. A copy of a bill statement for a service maintenance contract does not qualify you for the exemption. Verifications may also be submitted through the department’s website.
To qualify for the exemption, you must notify the bureau of your service maintenance contract each year. Service maintenance contract holders may submit the notification upon the elevator owner’s request.
