(1) Every inspector shall forward to the office a full report of each inspection made of any passenger elevator or fixed guideway system, showing the exact condition of the elevator or fixed guideway system, and the inspector shall leave a copy of the report at the elevator or fixed guideway system on the day the inspection is completed. (2) If any passenger elevator or fixed guideway system requires certain changes or repairs to make it reasonably safe to operate, recommendations shall be made by the inspector upon his or her report and a copy of the report as approved by the office shall be given to the owner or operator of the elevator or fixed guideway system, and, unless appealed, upon compliance therewith and upon the payment of the fees required by law, the office shall issue a certificate of operation for a capacity not to exceed that named in the report of inspection, which certificate shall be valid for one (1) year after the date of inspection. (3) If construction plans or an application of specifications is not approved, the office shall state in writing the necessary changes to obtain approval and the owner or operator shall be given a copy thereof, and, unless appealed, upon compliance therewith, the office shall approve the plans or specifications and issue a permit for construction. (4) Any owner or operator, within twenty (20) days from receipt of the copy of the report or statement of changes in plans or specifications, may make written application to the office upon forms to be furnished by the office for a hearing on the report or the statement regarding changes in plans or specifications as to whether the elevator or fixed guideway system in question is reasonably safe, or whether the elevator or fixed guideway system, if constructed in accordance with the plans and specifications, would be reasonably safe. The office shall promptly consider the application and schedule a hearing to be conducted consistent with the provisions of this section and KRS Chapter 13B. (5) If it appears from the evidence presented at the hearing that the elevator or fixed guideway system will be reasonably safe to operate without those changes or repairs shown in the report or by making only a part or all thereof, or if none or only a part of all the changes in the plans or specifications are found necessary to make the elevator reasonably safe, the office shall issue its final order accordingly. If the final order requires changes or repairs to be made in the elevator or fixed guideway system or changes in the plans or specifications of either, the office shall, upon the payment of the required fees, issue a certificate of operation when the order has been executed or issue its approval of the plans or specifications. If the final order of the office has been affirmed or modified by appeal on the grounds of reasonable safety considered by the office, then the office shall, upon compliance with the final order and the payment of required fees, issue the certificate of operation or issue its approval of the plans and specifications; but, if the order of the office has been vacated, the certificate of operation, upon the payment of fees or approval of plans and specifications, shall be issued forthwith.
