Recognition of a historic lift
Lifts (elevators) from before 1958 must meet current safety standards. Owners must take appropriate steps to be in order by 31 December 2022.
The lifts of that time have a heritage value that is important to preserve. However, the procedures for the risk analysis of the external technical audit services do not take this into account. The Brussels Region has therefore decided to draw up an inventory of old lifts:
- Register your old elevator in the inventory! (Homegrade, in French)
The lifts in this regional inventory can receive a certificate of recognition of their historical value free of charge, allowing them to be modernized with respect for the heritage.
