IES/ACES Lift & Escalator Inspector Registry


About the Lift & Escalator Inspector (LEI) Registry and LEI Certification Scheme

Currently, all lifts and escalators in Singapore are required to be inspected annually by Authorised Examiners (AEs) or Specialist Professional Engineers, trained in the branch of lifts and escalators [SPE (L&E), from 15 July 2019] for the purpose of the renewal of the Permit-to-Operate (PTO).

With increasing number of lifts and escalators in Singapore and the additional job scope for the SPE (L&E)s, BCA (Building and Construction Authority) has worked with IES (The Institution of Engineers, Singapore) and ACES (Association of Consulting Engineers) to introduce a Lift and Escalator Inspector (LEI) scheme which accredits personnel to assist the SPEs in carrying out of their duties and to build up the pool of lift and escalator experts who possess necessary L&E knowledge and inspection skills and who can assist SPEs on the inspection of the L&E installation and maintenance work.

The registry encourages eligible degree holders to join L&E industry and gain deeper experience in experience in L&E and then pursue their PE/SPE.
