Minnesota Rules – Amendments to Elevators and Related Devices

January 27, 2020

The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry requests comments on its possible amendment to Minnesota Rules, chapter 1307, “Elevators and Related Devices.” The existing Minnesota Rules chapter 1307 incorporates chapter 30 of the 2012 edition of the International Building Code (IBC) and incorporates by reference several standards published by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). The Department is considering rule amendments to update several ASME codes and standards and repeal Minnesota Rules, part 1307.0095, “Chapter 30 of the International Building Code; Elevators and Conveying Systems.” The Department intends to incorporate Chapter 30 by reference in Minnesota Rules, chapter 1305, “Adoption of the International Building Code” during its adoption of the 2018 IBC.

If 25 valid requests for hearing are received by 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 20, 2020, then a public hearing on the proposed rules will be held on March 9, 2020 in the Minnesota Room at the Department of Labor and Industry.

The Dual Notice, proposed rules and Statement of Need and Reasonableness, along with other information about the status of the rulemaking, are available in the rulemaking docket.
