  •  Elevator Inspections Under the New Codes.  With the increased elevator inspection and filing requirements put in place by the New NYC Construction Codes, the Department is allowing inspectors who have obtained Qualified Elevator Inspector (QEI) certification but are not department-licensed to perform elevator inspections and tests in calendar year 2009 during this transition. QEI-certified inspectors are individuals who are nationally certified in accordance with ASME QEI-1.
