Rulemaking Actions

Elevator and Amusement Device Bureau:

Effective October 10, 2023, inflatable devices were removed from the jurisdiction of the Elevator and Amusement Device Bureau (see Session Law 2023-137, Section 48). On December 14, 2023, the Rules Review Commission approved these rules for repeal with an anticipated effective date of April 1, 2024 (see 13 NCAC 15 .0430 - .0438.) However, the effective of the law removing inflatable devices from the Amusement Device Safety Act was October 10, 2023.

In addition, an amendment is being proposed to 13 NCAC 15 .0703 AMUSEMENT DEVICE INSPECTION FEE SCHEDULE (found in Chapter 15 - ELEVATOR AND AMUSEMENT DEVICE DIVISION, SECTION .0700 – FEES). The amendment would remove the annual inspection fee from the rule due to the statutory removal of inflatable devices.

Notice was provided in Volume 38, Issue 14 of the North Carolina Register, which was published on January 16, 2024. See page 930 of this document: Volume-38-Issue-14-January-16-2024. The proposed effective date of the amendment would be May 1, 2024.
