Attention: Building owners, property managers and licensed elevating contractors

As a result of inspections and auditing on Cab Modernization jobs, the BCSA determined that a significant number of data sheet submissions, information and weight calculations were incorrect.

Therefore, this Information Bulletin is to notify that effective January 8, 2014, all internal Cab Modernizations will be specified as Minor Alterations that will require Professional Engineering review and stamp. In addition to the technical submission the attached Internal Cab Modernization Data Sheet must be completed and signed by the Professional Engineer.

Alterations shall comply with the applicable requirements of the B44 Code, Directive D-L4 110803 5 and the Acts & Regulations.

Definitions:

Alteration: any change to equipment, including its parts, components, and/or subsystems, other than maintenance, repair, or replacement.

Replacement: the substitution of a device or component and/or subsystems, in its entirety, with a unit that is basically the same as the original for the purpose of ensuring performance in accordance with applicable Code requirements (see CSA B44-078.6.12.5 where replacement of specific components constitutes an alteration).
