Certify your safety!

Certify your safety!

Elevators’ certifications are carried through by PAPPAS elevators’ specialized Certification department, in collaboration with TÜV HELLAS –the leading entity in safety’s certification in Greece. The aforementioned process relates primarily with conducting initial and periodic audits to verify operational safety. Inspection & Certification of elevators by an independent and authorized Organization (Body) are mandatory the last decades in developed European countries and since 2000 in Greece. The inspection can be initial (prior to first use), and it is called certification, or periodical at prescribed time intervals, and should not be confused with regular maintenance.


Elevators’ certification is not just a formal legal obligation, but a thorough examination of the effectiveness and functionality of all safety components for the protection of the user as well as of the technical personnel. Certification covers all elevators, new and old, installed in houses, residence buildings, office buildings, large private projects, public venues, industrial sites, ships, etc. According to the ministerial decision published with FEK 2604/B/2008:

  • The new lifts installed in buildings with a building permit after 01/07/1999 are subject to the European Directive 95/16/EC and standards EN 81-1, 2 / 1998 (CE) and have to be certified by Notified Bodies before they are put into service.
  • The existing (old) lifts should be inspected by inspection bodies and adapt to the safety specifications of new lifts.
  • Noted, that all the lifts (after initial inspection) have to be periodically inspected by an inspection body every 1 to 5 years depending on the usage of the lift.
