REQUIREMENTS FOR EXISTING INSTALLATIONS Elevators and escalators in jurisdictions that have adopted the Safety Code for Existing Elevators and Escalators, ASME A17.3, and installations thathave been altered in accordance with Part XII of the Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators ANSI/ASME A17.1d–1986 and later editions must, as a minimum, conform to the requirements identified in this Guide as “A17.3.” If an existing installation does not meet the requirements of the A17.3 Code, it must be upgraded. If an existing installation was required to meetmore stringentrequire- ments, it must continue to meet those requirements. Alteration, if made, must conform to the requirements of A17.1, Part XII and the entire installation must con- form to the requirements of A17.3. The alteration requirements in A17.1, Part XII may be more stringent than the requirements of A17.3. The equipment must conform to the more stringent of the two. METRIC (SI) UNITS This edition of the Guide uses both imperial and met- ric (SI) units. The units used in the Guide are the units found in the referenced code [e.g., imperial (metric) or metric (imperial)].

Published Interpretations. Interpretations of the vari- ous A17 standards are published periodically. Interpretations of A17.1 and A17.2 approved by the A17 Committee from June 14, 1972 through June 1979 were published in a separate book in 1980. Starting with the 1981 edition of the Code, interpreta- tions are published with each new edition and supple- ment of the applicable standard. A compilation of Interpretations Nos. 2–13 (June 1979–May 1989) has also been published by ASME. A compilation of all interpre- tations can also be obtained through the A17 CD-ROM. Handbookon A17.1/B44 SafetyCode. This Handbook augments the A17.1/B44 Codes with commentary, dia- grams, and illustrations that are intended to explain the requirements of the A17.1/B44 Code. The commentary contained in the Handbook is the opinion of the author and has not been approved by the A17 Committee or the B44 Technical Committee.

ProposingRevisions. Revisions are made periodically to the Guide to incorporate changes that appear neces- sary or desirable, as demonstrated by the experience gained from the application of the procedures, and in order to conform to developments in elevator technol- ogy. Approved revisions will be published periodically. The Committee welcomes proposals for revisions to this Guide. Suchproposals should be as specific as possi- ble: citing the Item number(s), the proposed wording, and a detailed descriptionofthe reasons for the proposal including any pertinent documentation.
