The minimum requirements of safety (further - Requirements) determine conditions and technical requirements on operation, supervision and assessment of safety by operation of elevators in use, servicing, audit and repair of electric and hydraulic elevators for transportation of people, people and loads or loads, with internal and external team.
2. Passenger electric and hydraulic elevators for transportation of people, people and loads or loads with internal team are called further "elevators".
3. These Requirements are applied to the following types of elevators and components of safety:
1) the electric and hydraulic elevators servicing the specified levels having cabin which moves on length of some tough guides and inclined at an angle more than 15 ° in relation to the horizon provided for transportation:
a) people, including patients;
b) people and loads;
c) only loads when the cabin is available, and it means that one person without difficulty can enter the cabin equipped inside with elements of management, or in radius of action of one person, being inside;
2) the safety components provided for elevators.

7. In sense of these Requirements, terms and determinations have the following values:
the small elevator for materials (montcharge) – the elevator with the electric drive of the small size and with low loadings, provided for transportation of light materials which on the design do not allow access for people to cabin;
the elevator only for goods – the elevator intended for transportation of goods with service personnel in cabin. Operation of cabin is performed through internal team;

cabin – the element consisting of at least two complete walls, except for doors and the closed ceilings.
the owner – physical person or legal entity which owns under any form the elevator in operation;
safety assessment in use – set of inspections, checks and testing for identification of technical condition, assessment of residual term of functioning and identification of safe operating conditions of one installation / one device;

registration – action for registration of elevators in Control facility and the state technical supervision;
specialized enterprise – the company which has all necessary allowing documents for accomplishment of the corresponding types of activity;
audit – the activities, as a rule, planned, consisting of set of transactions which are carried out in relation to the elevator for the purpose of regulation or replacement of the built-in parts and devices, according to these Requirements;
rated load – maximum demand for which the elevator is designed and mounted, specified on it;
technical inspection – set of the checks and/or testing which are carried out based on the used technical documentation of the elevator and provisions of normative and technical documents in the field of industrial safety for the purpose of assessment of measures in case of which the elevator conforms to requirements of functioning in safety conditions, with issue of the certificate of examination;
periodic technical inspection – the technical inspection which is carried out periodically according to provisions of these Requirements;
rated speed (v) – cabin speed, in meters per second for which the elevator is designed and mounted.
8. Again mounted elevator, except for the small elevator for materials, before commissioning is registered in Control facility and the state technical supervision, and what is in operation, after its transfer to other owner (owner), reconstruction and replacement, will be re-registered in Control facility and the state technical supervision.
9. Can be small elevators for materials:
