Since July 2021, Rostekhnadzor has lost the right to control compliance with technical regulations in relation to dangerous technical devices of buildings and structures. In particular, he lost the right to control the condition of elevators, escalators and similar devices.
Now no one controls the safe operation of lifting devices, which creates risks of harm to the life and health of citizens, the developers of the bill noted. As Aleksey Zakharov, First Vice President of the National Union of Elevators, noted at the round table in RG, after the loss of these powers by Rostekhnadzor, the decrease in the number of accidents with elevators slowed down.
The law establishes that the control and supervision of safety in the use and maintenance of dangerous technical devices is the responsibility of a federal authority authorized by the government.
In the facilities under the jurisdiction of the authorities in the field of defense, security, state security, foreign intelligence, mobilization training and punishment execution, the subdivisions of the relevant departments will monitor the condition of the elevators .
The law will enter into force from March 2023.
