Effective Date: 
Thursday, March 2, 2017


Statement of Basis and Purpose  

The Department of Buildings (DOB) is amending section 104-09 of Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York relating to hoisting machine operators.  The amendments reflect the New York State Supreme Court’s decision that the portion of the current rule relating to out-of-state experience in an urban area of comparable density for a Class A Hoisting Machine License is invalid.  

DOB’s authority for this rule is found in Sections 643 and 1043(a) of the New York City Charter, Sections 28-401.6 and 28-405.3 of the City Administrative Code.
