Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

Under section 2101 of the New York City Charter, the Business Integrity Commission (“BIC”) is authorized to investigate, license and regulate the trade waste industry. To ensure that trade waste businesses operate free from organized crime and corruption, BIC conducts investigations of certain employees and prospective employees of trade waste license applicants and trade waste licensees.

These proposed rule amendments would raise the fees associated with the investigation of employees or agents and prospective employees or agents of an applicant for a trade waste license or a trade waste licensee and who are required to submit fingerprints and disclosure to the Commission. These investigation fees are part of the licensing process, and have not been changed since the Commission’s inception in 1996. The amended fees would satisfy the Commission’s statutory mandate to recoup all costs associated with licensing through imposed fees.

Pursuant to Charter section 1043(d)(4)(iii), the proposed rule amendments are exempt from the requirements of Local Law 46 of 2010 because the rule amendments are solely concerned with the modification of the amount of a fee or fees.
