ALIS Cover - color yw 2016          Cortland, New York (June 7, 2016) – The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has approved the latest version of the American National Standard covering safety requirements for vehicle lift installation and service. The new standard, ANSI/ALI ALIS 2009 (R2015), replaces the existing standard, ANSI/ALI ALIS 2009, effective June 15, 2016.

ANSI/ALI ALIS 2009 (R2015) describes the duties and responsibilities of lift installers and service technicians, including the required qualifications, training, reporting and documentation. It also provides sample forms and checklists for use by installers and service personnel attempting to comply with the standard.
