Required Reporting for Elevators and Other Conveyance Devices

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 for assistance.
