a) be located in any permanent and fixed structure within or attached to a building, except lifts located in private residences (single family units) or means of transport, e.g. ships,

b) have any rated load, size of load-carrying unit and speed, and travel distance and number of landings,

c) be affected by fire in the load-carrying unit, earthquakes, weather or floods, and

d) be foreseeably misused (e.g. overloaded), but not vandalized.
