Liftinstituut plays an important role with 200 employees. That is undeniable added value. We are small enough to be flexible, efficient and customer-focused and large enough to be active around the world. It was obvious that Liftinstituut was appointed as the first European Notified Body for all fields of action with regard to the directive related to lifts and that we are the chairperson of the consultative European Notified Body in the field of action of lifts. We are also a member of various Boards of Experts and we contribute to the national and international standards commissions.

Since March 2009, the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) officially recognized Liftinstituut as an Accredited Elevator/Escalator Certification Organization (AECO). By now it should be clear: When you start a relationship with Liftinstituut, relevant information about legislation and regulations will reach you first. You will profit in the best possible way from our experience.
