Statement of Basis and Purpose 

The Department of Buildings (DOB) is amending section 104-01 of Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York relating to license qualifications.  The amendments more accurately reflect the current qualification process for licensees, expand the fitness requirements to additional license types and add restrictions on the location of contractors’ businesses within the city.

The rule also includes minor plain language revisions.

DOB’s authority for this rule is found in Sections 643 and 1043(a) of the New York City Charter and Section 28-401.6 of the City Administrative Code.
