MH29.1:2012 Recognized by the International Building Code

Advance Lifts made the announcement.

Advance Lifts has announced in a news release that the International Building Code 2015 has been published, and in the text the IBC now recognizes ANSI code MH29.1:2012 as the authority over industrial scissor lifts.

The reference can be found in Chapter 30 section 3001.2. This is considered a big win since some states and municipalities go strictly by the IBC and it clearly separates industrial scissor lifts from elevators. Rider mezzanine lift approvals should be much easier. This is expected to help those who are having a problem getting job approval by empowering them to let their inspectors know that industrial scissor lifts are in now included in the IBC.
