Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

Local Law 141 of 2013, which goes into effect on October 1, 2014, amends the Administrative Code of the City of New York, the New York City Plumbing Code, the New York City Building Code, the New York City Mechanical Code and the New York City Fuel Gas Code to bring these codes up to date with the 2009 editions of the International Building, Mechanical, Fuel Gas and Plumbing Codes. 

The Department’s Referenced Standards are found in Chapter 35 of the New York City Building Code. Local Law 141 repealed Chapter 35 and added a new one.

This proposed rule will correct an error in the year of two of the standards listed in new Chapter 35 – ACI 318 for structural concrete and ANSI A10.4 for personnel hoists. The correction will conform them to the existing edition of these standards, as well as to the Building Code sections to which these standards are applied, which reflect the correct year’s language.

The Department of Buildings’ authority for these rules is found in sections 643 and 1043 of the New York City Charter and Section 28-103.19 of the New York City Administrative Code.
