The FEO-K1 is now part of the elevator code for all of North America on new elevator installations since the 2006 version of the ASME A17.1 / CSA B44 Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators. What is the situation in your jurisdiction?
I'm having a horrible time getting this one through. Currently in Oklahoma City, we've got at least 20 keys. Our code enforcement is trying to push that keys in a Knox Box is sufficient but I disagree. So my official answer for Okla. City, is " Not SO Much......"
I'm still getting used to this system, so sorry for the delay. The thing to look for now is what are they going to do, as the 2006 code requires that the FEO-K1 be installed unless your local jurisdiction decides to modify the code. I'd find some sympathetic elevator people in your city to fill you in on what they are doing, and just what edition of the code the state is using. As for the existing installations, that is always an uphill battle, and with the overall economy in the tank, it becomes harder. Feel free to ask , and I'll answer any questions you may have. Stay safe!
