Elevator PVT Violation

If the violation is hazardous or was issued for no access to the device or machine room, a Certified Elevator Inspection Company must submit a letter, by mail or in-person to the Elevator Unit indicating the corrections made and requesting a re-inspection of the device.

If the violation is non-hazardous, the certified company may itself perform the re-inspection and submit an Affirmation of Correction (ELV29 Form) along with a copy of the violation to the Elevator Unit.

Only PVT companies may submit paper ELV29 Forms. All other Affirmations of Correction are required to be submitted in DOB NOW: Safety.
