Synopsis: Regulated lifting devices and fire and building safety commission. Conference committee report for ESB 488. Requires the fire prevention and building safety commission to adopt rules for the issuance of elevator contractor, elevator inspector, and elevator mechanic licenses. Provides for the licensure of occupations related to elevators. Adds a member to the fire prevention and building safety commission from the masonry construction industry. Provides for a Class C infraction for the installation or alteration of a regulated lifting device without a permit, whether or not the person performing the installation or alteration is required to be licensed to perform the work. Requires the registration and inspection of regulated lifting devices, with certain exceptions. Allows the fire prevention and building safety commission to adopt rules to establish fees for the issuance of various permits and licenses relating to regulated lifting devices and regulated boiler and pressure vessels. Repeals statutes that set the fees relating to: (1) permitting and inspection of regulated lifting devices; (2) permitting of an owner or user for inspections of regulated boilers and pressure vessels; (3) inspection of a regulated boiler or pressure vessel for the issuance of a permit; (4) manufacturers using the inspection services of the office of the state building commissioner; (5) a regulated boiler and pressure vessel inspector license; and (6) an owner or user boiler and pressure vessel inspection agency license. Makes conforming amendments. (This conference committee report: (1) permits the building inspector of a city, town, or county, instead of the building commissioner, to serve on the fire prevention and building safety commission; (2) deletes the requirement that the erection or construction of certain regulated lifting devices be performed by a licensed elevator mechanic or contractor; and (3) changes the date by which an applicant must apply for an elevator contractor license in order to be entitled to the license without examination to March 1, 2003, or before.)

Effective: July 1, 2002; April 1, 2003.
