San Diego County Elevator Inspection Tool

To find out if your building’s elevator or escalator has an expired permit or the last time it had a state inspection, type in your street name or full address in the search bar below.

Through the California Public Records Act, NBC 7 Investigates requested data from the California Department of Industrial Relations on all elevator and escalators operating in San Diego County.
