Royal Decree amending the Royal Decree of 9 March 2003 on the security of lifts
This Royal Decree sets out the conditions that owners of lifts must comply with in order to operate their lift safely. They imply that they organise regular maintenance and preventive inspections. It also determines how lifts shall be modernised (implementation of 96/216/EC).
The Royal Decree on the security of lifts requires all older lifts in Belgium to be modernised within a reasonable period of time. In order to give the owners of lifts of historic value sufficient time to complete this modernisation, the deadlines are adjusted in this amending act and more space is provided to preserve the features of these lifts which have a heritage value.
