New ANSI/ALI Safety Standard Now in Effect

The latest version of the American national standard covering safety requirements for vehicle lift installation and service in North America is now in effect. Approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), ANSI/ALI ALIS 2022 replaced the existing standard, ANSI/ALI ALIS 2009 (R2015), effective August 4, 2022. The Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) is the ANSI-accredited standards developer and sponsor of ANSI/ALI ALIS.

ANSI/ALI ALIS 2022 describes the duties and responsibilities of lift installers and service technicians, including required qualifications, training, reporting and documentation. The 2022 standard is about 50% longer than the prior version. It adds expanded content addressing accessories, attachments, decommissioning and removal; a new section focused on the need for post-installation inspection; and new definitions. The standard applies to vehicle service lifts, generally called car lifts, truck lifts and hoists. 

The 37-page standard is available in print from ALI, its member manufacturers and ALI-certified lift inspectors. www.autolift.org/ali-store/
