As stated in the circular, before carrying out the lift modernisation works, lift owner needs to take note for the following:
i) A lift owner must need to inform BCA before he can start these works. He must engage a registered lift service contractor to carry out the works under the supervision of an independent Authorised Examiner (“AE”). ii) Any existing Permit-to-Operate (“PTO”) will cease to be valid whilst the works are being done. iii) Upon completion, an AE must examine, inspect and test the lift and issue a certificate that states that the lift is fit for operation before the owner can apply to BCA for a PTO.
We applaud BCA’s encouragement to lift owners to modernise the lifts. Lift modernisation is a process in which the existing old lifts are upgraded after a long period of lift operation (e.g. > 20 years of service). In some cases, they are upgraded at even shorter period of operation due to its critical breakdowns. Such upgrading is essential to bring them on par with newer lifts with the incorporation of newly added features such as light curtain, unintended car movement (UCMP) and governor rope tension switch. These features together with an energy efficient controller system can enhance the lift energy efficiency through improved technology, reliability, safety and reduce the its breakdown rates. It also resolves the issues of spare parts obsolescence as the lifts ages.Continue reading “BCA encourages lift owners to modernise lifts”→
