The Elevator Safety Unit registers all elevator devices in the State of New Jersey as required by the elevator subcode, which is regulated under the Uniform Construction Code in Subchapter 12.
The Elevator Safety (ELSA) application was created to provide online access for building owners to make it easier to register new buildings and new installed devices, transfer ownership, and amend registration information. ELSA allows users to manage their accounts, look up and print bills and inspection reports, print certificates of passing inspections, and pay annual inspection bills, registration and penalty fees.
The ELSA application can be used to register the following elevator devices (hydraulic, traction, winding drum, roped hydraulic, rack & pinion and limited use limited access), escalators, moving walks, dumbwaiters, wheel chair lifts, chair lifts and man lifts.
The Bureau of Housing Inspection oversees the registration and periodic inspection of hotels, motels
and multiple dwellings as mandated under the Hotel and Multiple Dwelling Law, to ensure the health,
safety and welfare of residents, guests and the general public.
This portal provides online access to properties on file with Housing Inspection. Users may look up, print, and pay bills; view or print inspection reports, certificates of registration, certificates of inspection and judgments. Owners or authorized agents may register new properties, transfer ownership, update information, request an extension of time to abate violations or request an administrative hearing.
