Local Law 52 of 2014 changed the effective dates of amendments of the New York City Construction Codes pursuant to Local Law 141 of 2013 and certain other local laws from October 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014. 

 

 

By rule effective December 19, 2014 (see rule titled “Amendment to Change Effective Date of Miscellaneous Rules Related to 2014 Construction Codes”), the Department of Buildings amended the effective date of rules that were previously adopted pursuant to the 2014 NYC Construction Codes to conform them to the new effective date of the code (December 31, 2014).

 

 

Therefore, this rule went into effect on December 31, 2014, not October 1, 2014.
