Management of elevators according to laws and regulations

According to the law (Building Standards Act and Industrial Safety and Health Act), the owner (or administrator) must conduct annual inspections and periodic tests on elevators as maintenance.
In addition to conducting regular inspections, our company also provides reports on regular inspections conducted by our inspectors on lifts and other devices, and attends performance inspections.

- Paragraph 3, Article 12 of the Act

The owner, as assigned by a specified administrative government agency, of lifts, buildings specified in Item 1, Paragraph 1, Article 6 of this act, and building equipment other than lifts specified by a Cabinet Order in Paragraph 1 of the same act (excluding buildings constructed by the country, prefectures, and municipalities with district construction surveyors), are required, as provided for by the Ordinance of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, to have a first class architect, a second class architect, or a person who has been qualified by the Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism conduct inspections regularly and report the results to the specified administrative government agency.

- Paragraph 2, Article 41 of the Act

A person who intends to obtain a renewal of the valid term of the inspection certificate shall, as provided for by the Ordinance of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, undergo, in respect to the said specified machines, etc., and the related matters provided by the Ordinance of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, the performance inspection conducted by an agency registered by the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare (hereinafter referred to as "registered performance inspection agency").

Maintenance contract types

There are two types of maintenance contracts. The first is a full maintenance contract, which includes the replacement of parts that may need to be repaired as a result of using the elevator and covers repair fees, in addition to the monthly inspection fee. The second is the Parts, Oil, Grease (POG) contract, which only includes the replacement of expendable parts; and slight adjustments are made to the items included in the monthly inspection. We offer and provide the most suitable contract to our customers depending on the conditions of use such as the environment and usage frequency of the installed elevator.

Renewal of elevators

The statutory depreciation and service life of elevators is 17 years (according to tax laws), but the risk of a breakdown occurring increases about 20 years after installation due to reduced machine performance. The deterioration of the system as a whole, as well as in terms of functionality and design, that cannot be covered within the scope of the current contract will occur and it will become difficult to procure the necessary parts, so it is important to plan for a renewal (a full removal and replacement, a partial removal and renewal, or the renewal of the control system) in order to improve the functionality of the elevator and prevent it from breaking down. We will propose the most optimum renewal plan that suits our customer's budget and schedule.
