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.
How to request a recognition?
The Department of Culture and Heritage has drawn up a form for (co-)owners of buildings equipped with such lifts:
- Application for the recognition of a historic lift and its entry in the inventory (PDF, 48.32 KB) (in French)
- Application for the recognition of a historic lift and its entry in the inventory (PDF, 46.77 KB) (in Dutch)
Complete with photos of the lift and send the form to:
- Direction du Patrimoine culturel, Mont des Arts 10-13 - 1000 Brussels
