“(5) Inspection and test cycle.

(i) Category 1. Except as otherwise provided by the commissioner, January first through December thirty-first of each year.

(ii) Category 3. Except as otherwise provided by the commissioner, within three (3) years from the month of issuance of a final certificate for a new elevator or within three (3) years from the month of the most recent category 3 periodic inspection and test performed on an existing elevator.

(iii) Category 5. Except as otherwise provided by the commissioner, within five (5) years from the month of issuance of a final certificate for a new elevator or within five (5) years from the month of the most recent category 5 periodic inspection and test performed on an existing elevator.”
