    61C-5.001Safety Standards

    The Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Division of Hotels and Restaurants, Bureau of Elevator Safety hereby gives notice:

    On March 8, 2016, the Department issued a Final Order that was in response to a Petition for Variance from Commander Apts., filed February 16, 2016, and advertised on February 22. 2016, in Vol. 42, No.35, of the Florida Administrative Register. No comments were received in response to the petition. The Final Order on the Petition for Variance denies the Petitioner a variance from Rule 2.7.4.1, ASME A17.1b, 2009 edition, as adopted by subsection 61C-5.001(1), F.A.C., that states the minimum headroom requirement in the machine room. Petitioner has not demonstrated that the purpose of the underlying statute has been met. Granting of this variance would create a dangerous precedent and the proposed restricted use is not consistent with the principle of public safety articulated by the Rules. (VW 2016-035).

    A copy of the Order or additional information may be obtained by contacting: Michelle Comingore, Bureau of Elevator Safety, 1940 North Monroe Street, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-1013, dhr.elevators@myfloridalicense.com.
