Local Law 52 of 2014 changed the effective dates of amendments of the New York City Construction Codes pursuant to Local Law 141 of 2013 and certain other local laws as set forth in Local Law 52 from October 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014.  These amendments together are commonly referred to as “the 2014 NYC Construction Codes”.

In accordance with Section 1043(e)(iii) of the City Charter, DOB did not hold a public hearing on this rule amendment on the grounds that a hearing would have served no public purpose.


Further, in accordance with Section 1043(d)(4)(iii) of the City Charter, this rule is not subject to review pursuant to Section 1043(d) of same.
