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 from October 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014.   

 

By rule effective December 19, 2014 (see rule titled “Amendment to Change Effective Date of Miscellaneous Rules Related to 2014 Construction Codes”), the Department of Buildings amended the effective date of rules that were previously adopted pursuant to the 2014 NYC Construction Codes to conform them to the new effective date of the code (December 31, 2014). 

 

Therefore, this rule went into effect on December 31, 2014, not October 1, 2014. 

 

 

 

 

Statement of Basis and Purpose of Rule 

 

Local Law 141, 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.   

 

Local Law 141 amended some requirements, added new requirements and renumbered existing sections of the affected codes. The amendments to rule 102-01 address the changes enacted by Local Law 141 by adding 2014 code sections and descriptions to the table of classifications and deleting some classifications that are not used or that could be combined with existing descriptions.


The Department of Buildings’ authority for these rules is found in sections 643 and 1043 of the New York City Charter and sections 28-201.2, 28-201.2.1, and 28-202.1 of the New York City Administrative Code.
