The Building Maintenance and Strata Management (BMSM) Act is a regulatory framework specifying the regular and proper maintenance of lifts and escalators, to ensure that they are safe for use.
Supplementing the BMSM Act is the BMSM (Lift, Escalator and Building Maintenance) Regulations 2016, which states the maintenance requirements for lifts & escalators in Singapore.
The existing lift and escalator maintenance provisions under the BMSM Act will be ported over to the Building Control Act (BC Act). Some of the new changes would include Plan Submission requirements for Lifts & Escalators. More information on this can be found here.
Some lifts do not require approval from BCA to operate. Check if your lift is being regulated by BCA.
