We couldn't find any North Dakota ND state elevator safety legislation at this time. It appears that the elevator safety and permitting requirements are dictated by counties and municipalities. Note: Just because we couldn't find any legislation, doesn't guarantee there is none. Always check with your local authorities before proceeding.
In the meantime, there are several good resources available to you should you own/operate an elevator in North Dakota. 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.
