ASME A17.2-2014 pdf download.Guide for Inspection of Elevators, Escalators, and Moving Walks.
When a requirement within A17.1 or A17.3 cross- references another requirement, the cross-reference is shown with the refering requirement in braces, { }. For the A17.1–2000 and later edition requirements, where no direct cross-reference is found within the A17.1–2000 Cross-Reference Table, the prior code Rule (A17.1d–2000 and earlier editions) is shown in parentheses, ( ), with a preceding “NR” designation. Subsection numbering of items may not be sequential when there are no inspection or test procedures indi- cated within this Guide. NOTE: This Guide addresses the requirements ofA17.1–1955 and later editions and latest edition of A17.3. Some requirements in earlier editions of A17.1 are also addressed. The inspector is referred to the particular edition of the A17.1 Code that applies for requirements prior to 1955. This Guide has included the pertinent requirement from prior editions of A17.1, which differ from the requirements in the latest edition. As the inspector becomes familiar with the prescribed order ofinspection procedures, variations may be appropriate. The Foreword, Preface, and Appendix that are included in this document have been approved by the A17 Committee, but are not part of this American National Standard. NOTE: See also para. 2, Application, under the Introduction of this Guide. 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.
