Amendment to Rules Regarding Renewal Courses for Electrician, HMO and Rigger Licenses and HMO Certification Requirements

Adopted Rules: Closed to Comments

Effective Date: 
Wednesday, October 15, 2014


Statement of Basis and Purpose of Rule


Sections 104-06 and 104-09 of the Department’s rules require certain courses and certifications to be obtained by electrician, hoisting machine operator and rigger licensees prior to renewal of their licenses. The rule amendments will extend the date for compliance with these requirements because the required courses and certifications are not currently available.


The Department of Buildings’ authority for these rules is found in sections 643 and 1043 of the New York City Charter, as well as in Article 401 of Chapter 4 of Title 28 of the New York City Administrative Code.
