Purpose and Effect Subsection 399.15(3), F.S., requires the State Fire Marshal to adopt rules prescribing regional emergency elevator access requirements. Rule Chapter 69A-47, Uniform Firesafety Standards for Elevators, provides these requirements. Subsection 69A-47.016(2), F.A.C., identifies requirements for regional emergency elevator access in all buildings regulated under this rule pursuant to Section 399.15, F.S., Rule 69A-47.017, F.A.C., prohibits duplication of keys in elevators in all buildings regulated under this rule pursuant to Section 399.15, F.S. Currently the two rule sections repeat the statute which is not authorized by the Florida Administrative Code. The proposed amendments will update the rule to reflect that access to elevator keys and the prohibition of the duplication of elevator keys shall be in compliance with subsection 399.15(3), F.S.
