Florida Door Lock Monitoring Requirements

Deadline to comply is
December 31, 2023


To avoid code violations and costly expenses, it is important for Florida property owners to ensure that their elevators are equipped with a Door Lock Monitoring (DLM) system by December 31, 2023. This critical safety requirement prevents elevators from operating when door contact circuits are faulty, and can be achieved by activating existing DLM systems in elevators manufactured after 2000 or by upgrading or modernizing older elevators.

How to avoid costly expenses with your commercial elevator

If your building has an elevator, it is important to be aware of the new requirements for Door Lock Monitoring (DLM) systems in Florida. Elevators manufactured after 2000 may already have DLM systems in place, but they may need to be activated. Alternatively, these elevators can be connected to devices that provide DLM. On the other hand, elevators manufactured prior to 2000 will need to be upgraded or fully modernized in order to meet the DLM requirement. By taking these steps, you can ensure that your elevator is compliant with safety regulations and avoid potential problems in the future.

Make sure you are in compliance with Florida's new code

Florida code: ASME A17.3-2015 3.10.12 System to Monitor and Prevent Automatic Operation of the Elevator with Faulty Door Contact Circuits. This was adopted by the Florida House and Senate on 3/23/2021. Learn more.
