Statement of Basis and Purpose of Rule

Local Law Number 38 for the year 2015 amends Title 24 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York by authorizing the department to promulgate rules that will require emission sources or activities not listed in section 24-109(a)(1-16) to be registered with DEP.

DEP promulgates these rules, as authorized by Section 24-109(a)(17), to reduce emissions from cook stoves used primarily for cooking food for onsite consumption at a food service establishment.

This rulemaking reflects DEP’s determination that cook stoves are a source of significant emissions that must be registered with DEP.

DEP’s authority for these rules is found in sections of the New York City Charter section 1043 and sections 24-109(a)17 and 24-149.5 of the New York City Administrative Code.

DEP received one public comment concerning the applicability of this rule to charitable institutions and that it would be burdensome and onerous for religious institutions to comply. DEP has removed the provision that char coal burning appliances must register with the department since only coal and wood fired cook stoves are currently regulated by the Air Code.

Consistent with the above, DEP promulgates the following Rule to be found at 15 RCNY Chapter 50.
