(1) The division shall perform all initial inspections of a new or altered elevator regulated by ORS 460.005 to 460.175.
(2) Prior to all required final inspections, the elevator contractor or person holding the installation or alteration permit shall call for an inspection. Inspections shall be scheduled as soon as resources are available. Where new installation and alteration sites are located more than one hour travel, one-way, from an inspector's duty station, the contractor shall schedule inspections allowing the inspector to return to the duty station no later than end of business day on Friday or day preceding a holiday.
(3) Prior to the scheduled date of the final inspection, the elevator contractor is required to ensure that the installation of the equipment is complete and fully operational according to applicable codes. The elevator inspector is not obliged to continue an inspection where such evidence is not readily apparent.
(4) When the inspector discontinues an inspection because the installation fails inspection or is not ready for final inspection, the elevator contractor or general contractor shall be charged at the rate provided for in OAR 918-400-0800. Charges shall include all time expended, portal-to-portal, toward such inspections, but no less than 4 hours.
