Statement of Basis and Purpose

 

The rule updates the DOB Penalty Schedule in order to reflect amendments to Administrative Code § 28-203.1 made in Local Law 203 of 2017, which enacted minimum penalties for immediately hazardous violations and major violations of Article 110 of Chapter 28 of the Administrative Code or Chapter 33 of the New York City Building Code.  The rule also corrects typographical errors relating to citations to Administrative Code § 28-217.1.6 and Building Code § 3012.1. Finally, the rule adds one immediately hazardous violation relating to Administrative Code § 28-401.16, which sets forth restrictions on the use of licenses issued by DOB.

DOB’s authority for this rule is found in Sections 643 and 1043(a) of the New York City Charter and Section 28-201.2 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York.
