The rule updates the DOB Penalty Schedule in order to reflect amendments to Administrative Code § 28-203.1 made in Local Law 203 of 2017, which enacted minimum penalties for immediately hazardous violations and major violations of Article 110 of Chapter 28 of the Administrative Code or Chapter 33 of the New York City Building Code.  The rule also corrects typographical errors relating to citations to Administrative Code § 28-217.1.6 and Building Code § 3012.1. Finally, the rule adds one immediately hazardous violation relating to Administrative Code § 28-401.16, which sets forth restrictions on the use of licenses issued by DOB.

Statement of Basis and Purpose of Rule

The Department of Buildings is adopting changes regarding the classification of certain violations to reflect the requirements of Local Law 77 of 2015 and the 2014 updates to the NYC Construction Codes.

Local Law 77 of 2015, enacted on August 18, 2015, adds requirements for registration, discontinuance, removal, inspection, testing, cleaning, disinfecting and maintenance of cooling towers. Some of the amendments to rule 102-01 add new infractions to address the new cooling tower requirements. 

The 2014 updates to the NYC Construction Codes amended 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 and brought these codes up to date with the 2009 editions of the International Building, Mechanical, Fuel Gas and Plumbing Codes. 

The updates amended some requirements, added new requirements and renumbered existing sections of these codes.  Rule 102-01 is amended to reflect some of these changes by:

  • updating sections of the Administrative Code,
  • updating descriptions to the table of classifications,
  • deleting some existing violations that no longer apply or could be combined with existing descriptions, and
  • adding new violations and their classifications.

These infractions relate to:

  • Failure to provide pedestrian protection for sidewalks and walkways.
  • Failure to obey a vacate order.

In addition, the description and section of law of one charge is amended to cover all buildings or open lots which are being occupied without a valid Certificate of Occupancy.  The current charge and cited section apply only to new buildings built under the 2008 Construction Codes.  This description relates to:

  • Buildings occupied without a valid certificate of occupancy.

The Department of Buildings’ authority for these rules is found in sections 643 and 1043 of the New York City Charter and section 28-201.2 of the New York City Administrative Code.
