New York City Code Requirement All Existing Installations must have Door Positioning Monitoring by January 1, 2020

The 2014 Construction Codes for New York City, which include the NYC Building Code, went into effect on December 31, 2014. Chapter 30 of the NYC Building Code states, in part, that the design, construction, installation, alteration, repair and maintenance of elevators and their components shall conform to ASME A17.1 as modified by Appendix K, including Chapters K1 K4. Appendix K, Chapter K3 addresses the NYC modifications to the Safety Code for Existing Elevators and Escalators (ASME A17.3-2002), codifying the retroactive requirements for existing elevators and escalators originally established by 1 RCNY 3610-01.

Due to the complex and critical nature of this code requirement, MCE does not recommend or approve a 3rd party solution, but we do offer a code-compliant door position monitoring solution, customized to be compatible with your controller’s unique configuration.

Please contact the MCE Modifications department ( or 800-444-7442) to request a review to determine whether or not a modification is required. For more information, click here.
