Elevator Permits and Inspection Forms
All permits for new construction, alteration and repairs, as well as Certificates of Operation will be issued by Miami-Dade County Office of Elevator Safety. The office will monitor and regulate all elevator activities, as required by law.
Please review our new fee schedule for FY 2015-16, which became effective October 1, 2015. The increased rates applicable to the private sector will become effective January 1, 2016. This will include our inspections of all permitted work which are billed to elevator contractors.
For your information, our office has not altered our fees since we began operation in 2003. This year, the Board of County Commissioners has approved a rate increase for our inspection fees, which are being increased by 26 percent. That amounts to a modest 2 percent per year, which is less than the cost of living increases for the same period.
