Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule
On December 30, 2013, Local Law 141 was signed by the Mayor. Local Law 141 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. That local law goes into effect on October 1, 2014.
Among the changes made by Local Law 141 were amendments to portions of section 1210.2.2 of the Mechanical Code and additions to section 406.1.1.1 of the Fuel Gas Code. These amendments address welder qualification testing and approved agencies. Rule 101-07 is being amended to reflect the new provisions enacted by Local Law 141.
