Required Reporting for Elevators and Other Conveyance Devices

AIC enforcement in 2021

Thank you for your continued patience as we diligently worked to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the past year. Due to a decrease in positivity rates and a slow and safe reopening of our normal operations, we will resume filing AIC cases for the 2021 cycle beginning with first quarter buildings that have a reporting deadline on March 31, 2021. The Department of Buildings (DOB) remains committed to achieving compliance in our AIC program, and we will continue to work with building owners to achieve that goal. DOB will monitor our email and be available for any inquiries. Please feel free to reach out to john.scott3@cityofchicago.org with any additional questions.

The Annual Inspection Certification (AIC) program is an on-line building inspection program that requires building owners/property managers to hire state-licensed, third-party inspection companies to inspect their elevators and other conveying devices annually.  These findings are then reported to the Department of Buildings via the AIC portal.

Our upgraded AIC system has key enhancements that allow AIC participants to have quarterly due dates and multiple owners for conveyance devices at subject properties.  Please access new program information here.

If you have specific questions, please email aic@cityofchicago.org for assistance.
