CodeFinder can locate all local codes, including accessibility, building, electrical, new and existing elevator and life safety codes, regulations, and laws applicable throughout the United States and Canada. CodeFinder also features a directory of code enforcement authorities, their referenced codes and all modifications pertaining to the referenced model code for elevator and escalators.
"Three years in the making, the NEII CodeFinder database is an invaluable, one-of-a-kind resource for every level of North American elevator industry professional, from field personnel and engineers to manufacturing managers, company attorneys and senior executives," says Edward Donoghue, administrator of NEII. "For the first time, there is now a single source for all NEII Full Regular Member companies and their employees to search and find accurate, up-to-date information on all the local codes, standards and regulations that affect the industry."
In addition to the online database, CodeFinder is supported by dedicated NEII CodeFinder Editors who can answer questions and quickly correct any errors in the database. Members can also tailor their personal profile options to receive weekly e-mail notifications of updates to the NEII CodeFinder database. All reports can be easily stored or printed for off-line use, and outdated information is archived for future reference or historical analysis.
"What members are especially excited about is the fact that it’s interactive, historical and very easy to use and understand,” says Donoghue. “We are truly excited about the effect this tool will have on our industry and in growing NEII’s membership."
Existing, full regular members can access the password-protected database through the member area of the NEII Web site. If your company is not a full regular member you can view sample reports under the Code & Safety section of the NEII Web site, NEII says.
