Consultation: Revision of the Inspection of Lifts Regulations

 The Inspection of Lifts Regulations (ILR) of 2007, Legal Notice 231 of 2007, are national regulations setting out procedures for the registration and periodic inspection of lifts to ensure a high level of safety of both new and old lifts in Malta. The proposed ILR 2011 will revoke and replace ILR 2007 with the main aim of simplification and clarification on the most common practical issues raised by all stakeholders since the inception of ILR 2007.

 

The most significant changes being proposed are:

  • The definition of "lift" under ILR has now been fully and clearly linked to the definition of "lift" under the Lifts Regulations, 2002 (LN 370/2002), including any exclusions. This means that only lifts falling under the Lifts Regulations, 2002, will now also fall under ILR;
  • A new section specifically on market surveillance has been introduced, to tackle cases of non-conforming lifts.

The other changes are explained hereunder, where you are invited to add any comments you may have.

Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact David Pulis on . Feedback is to be sent by 18th February 2011.
