Kansas elevator and escalator codes
The State of Kansas KS Elevator Section (a division of Office of Facilities and Property Management) oversees all elevators in the State of Kansas. It appears that the elevator safety and permitting requirements are dictated by counties and municipalities. Always check with your local authorities before proceeding. There are several good resources available to you should you own/operate an elevator in Kansas. The American Society of Engineers has created standards addressing elevator operation, testing, and maintenance: ASME A17.3 and ASME A17.1. These standards are excellent resources for commercial elevator owners, please see our elevator resource section for additional information regarding elevator safety.
