Title: Petition Requesting Rulemaking on Residential Elevators 

The Safety Institute, Carol Pollack-Nelson, and Cash, Krugler & Fredericks, LLC, requested that the Commission initiate a rulemaking to mandate a safety standard for residential elevators to address an entrapment hazard caused by excess space between the elevator car door/gate (interior door) and a hoistway or swing door (exterior door). The request was docketed as a petition and the Commission published a Federal Register Notice asking for comments on the petition.
