Before any new installation of an elevator of permanent nature is erected or before any existing elevator is removed to and installed in a different location, an application of specifications in duplicate shall be submitted to the division of industrial compliance giving such information concerning the construction, installation, and operation of said elevator as the division may require on forms to be furnished by the division, together with complete construction plans in duplicate. In all cases where any changes or repairs are made which alter its construction of classification, grade or rated lifting capacity, except when made pursuant to a report of an inspector, an application of specifications in duplicate shall be submitted to the division, containing such information, or approval, except in those municipal corporations which maintain their own elevator inspection departments, in which event such specifications shall be submitted to the elevator department of the municipal corporation for its approval, and if approved, a permit for the erection or repair of such elevator shall be issued by the municipal corporation. Upon approval of such application and construction plans, the superintendent of industrial compliance shall issue a permit for the erection or repair of such elevator. No new elevator shall be operated until completion in accordance with the approved plans and specifications, unless a temporary permit is granted by the division.
The final inspection, before operation, of a permanent, new or repaired elevator shall be made by a general inspector or a special inspector designated by the superintendent.
