What You Need to Know About Elevator Inspections in Various States
We specialize in code compliant third-party test witnessing that is required by jurisdictions in Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington DC.

The State of Virginia requires a third-party qualified elevator inspector (QEI) to witness the annual equipment testing performed by your maintenance company. We provide this service with a routine inspection at a coordinated appointment with your maintenance company.
Various Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) in Virginia require a semi-annual routine inspection. Contact us for your AHJ’s requirements.
Please note that most certificates are generated by the AHJ and certificate costs are generally not included in our inspection fees.
Our team provides third-party annual test witnessing and inspection services during a coordinated appointment with your elevator maintenance company. Reports are submitted to the AHJ by our inspector.
