The proposed requirement for Detection of Overload on Passenger Elevators and Freight Elevators Permitted by 2.16.4 to Carry Passengers would only apply to Alterations for the Increase or Decrease in Deadweight of Car (8.7.2.15.2), Increase in Rated Load (8.7.2.16.4), or Increase of Rated Speed (8.7.2.17.2). Since Change in Type of Motion Control (8.7.2.27.5) already requires compliance with Ascending Car Overspeed Protection and Unintended Movement Protection, I suggest that it would best serve the public interest that Section 8.7.2.27.5 be amended as follows: Add new subsection: (f) Detection of Overload on Passenger Elevators and Freight Elevators Permitted by 2.16.4 to Carry Passengers shall conform to 2.16.10.
