Important information regarding ASME PDFs


There is a newer edition of this document available.

ASME has been defining safety in elevators, escalators and related equipment since 1921. 

A17.2 covers recommended inspection and testing procedures for electric and hydraulic elevators, escalators, and moving walks required to conform to the Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators, A17.1-1955 and later editions, plus the Safety Code for Existing Elevators and Escalators, A17.3.  Note:  this Guide may not reflect the latest requirements in the current A17.1/B44 and A17.3 Safety Codes.

This 2014 Edition provides updated cross-references and additional guidelines to coordinate with A17.1-2013/B44-13.  It also features new guidelines for inspection of limited use / limited application elevators, while adding new non-mandatory Appendices Checklists for Firefighters’ Operation and Emergency Signaling Devices of Automatic and Nonautomatic Elevators. It also contains new format of A17.2 Checklists for Electric, Hydraulic Elevators and Escalators & Moving Walks.

A17.2 is to be used in conjunction with other volumes of ASME’s A17 series of Safety Codes.  Careful application of these A17 Safety Codes will help users to comply with applicable regulations within their jurisdictions, while achieving the operational and safety benefits to be gained from the many industry best-practices detailed within these volumes.

Intended for anyone engaged in the safety of elevators, escalators and related conveyances, including those responsible for:  design, engineering and manufacture; installation, operation, testing, maintenance, alteration and repair; inspection; plans, contracts, administration, insurance and liability; property, facilities and plant management; and emergency response.
