New Jersey Elevator Inspection Agency fully authorized by the NJ DCA as Private Onsite Inspection Agency in the Elevator Subcode
The New Jersey Privatization Task Force Report to Gov. Chris Christie states: enormous inspection backlogs exist and that outsourcing plan review and field inspections, currently done by the state DCA office, would improve the efficiency of the code enforcement process and ultimately save state resources.
New Jersey Elevator Inspection Agency (NJEIA) brings you experienced professionals that will handle all the details of elevator inspections, as well as plan reviews and other elevator subcode duties. NJEIA makes it easy for towns to have a local solution that adds a new revenue stream, and saves taxpayer money. You’ll want to keep NJEIA around as a long-term partner.
NJEIA adds revenue to the municpal budget
By using NJEIA to inspect all elevator devices in your town, the municipality can retain a portion of inspection fees collected to cover their administrative costs. Additional revenue for the town will come from penalties and fines assessed for violations. These fees collected by the town will add to the municipal construction office budget.
NJEIA inspections help fund current municipal staff positions
Increased revenue to your township from using NJEIA for your local elevator inspection and subcode duties can help prevent reductions of staff hours and/or terminations of township employees. Reduced staff may adversely affect the level of service provided to local residents, property owners, and others who need to coordinate with the local Construction Office. NJEIA inspections provides extra revenue to maintain current municipal staff positions to support a higher level of service.
NJEIA saves taxpayer money
The revenue gained by using NJEIA local inspections helps ease the budgetary pressure on your municipality. This additional revenue does not create an extra burden on taxpayers, while maintaining township services and jobs.

NJEIA is your elevator subcode partner that will operate under the direction of the local Construction Official. By using NJEIA, your town can be assured to have a local resource to respond quickly to any minor or major issue involving elevator devices. Also, a local subcode official can provide more expedient plan review and will not delay local projects.
Public Safety: Local is better
According to the New Jersey Privatization Taskforce Report (May 2010): Enormous inspection backlogs exist not only for elevators, but also for rooming houses, boarding homes, health care facilities, and multiple dwelling units. The Division of Codes and Standards in the Department of Community Affairs which is designed to be entirely supported by fees, incurred a loss more than $10 million in FY 2009. Outsourcing plan review and field inspections, currently done by the state DCA office, would improve the efficiency of the code enforcement process and ultimately save state resources. Additionally, inspection backlogs reduction will enhance public safety. 1
