Application of Requirements

Equipment Covered by This Standard

Lifts discussed in this Standard are as follows:

(a) enclosed vertical platform lifts;

(b) unenclosed vertical platform lifts;

(c) stair chair lifts; and

(d) stair platform lifts.

Equipment Not Covered by This Standard

This Standard does not apply to lifts for persons with physical disabilities covered by CSA Standard B355, Lifts for Persons with Physical Disabilities, nor to elevating devices covered by CSA Standard CAN/CSA-B44, Safety Code for Elevators


In cases of novel designs or new configurations that cannot be precisely classified, or in cases where a material, device, component, construction method, or installation method is used that is not specifically covered in this Standard, or in cases of reported nonconformance, the regulatory authority may grant exceptions or permit alternative methods when it is assured that equivalent objectives can be achieved by establishing and maintaining effective safety.
