Statement of Basis and Purpose



Section 20-104 (a) of the New York City Administrative Code gives the Commissioner control of all licenses issued under chapter two of Title 6 of the Rules of the City of New York.


Since most licensed home improvement contractors are also licensed salespeople, the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) is proposing a rule that simplifies compliance for those working in the home improvement industry who hold both licenses. The proposed rule will accomplish this by setting a single expiration date for both licenses. Specifically, this Rule amends Section 1-02 of Title 6 to change the expiration dates of Home Improvement Salesperson and Home Improvement Contractor licenses to February 28 of odd years, making both license expiration dates concurrent.. This rule change will also simplify administration of these licenses by DCA.
