Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule
This rule defines the method that must be used in performing a smoke test or stack test for generators with an output of 40 kilowatts or more.
Local Law Number 38 for the year 2015 amends Title 24 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York. It defines required procedures that a professional engineer or registered architect must follow in order to certify that any generator with an output of 40 kilowatts or more has passed a stack test or smoke test.
Section 24-109(c)(2)(i) specifically requires the Department to establish by rule a method for the stack test that generators must pass before registration of the generator. Section 24-125(a) requires the Department to issue a rule that establishes criteria that must be met prior to a work permit being granted for any equipment, including a generator.
The Rule is authorized by Section 1043 of the Charter and section 24-105 24-109(c)(2)(i), and 24-125(a)(1) of the Administrative Code.
