Adopted Rules Content: 

Effective July 1, 2013, a construction or demolition project requiring a New York City Department of Buildings permit and whose site is enclosed with a fence or contains a sidewalk shed must comply with the signage requirements of Local Law 47 for the year 2013. The purpose of this rule is to clarify existing New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) signage requirements for its permittees so that these requirements do not conflict with the new local law. The rule will achieve this goal by: • Distinguishing between two different signs currently required by DOT: (1) signage along a series of excavations or street openings, and (2) signage for any project with a projected completion time of three months or more; and • Listing the various content requirements for each type of required sign.

Statement of Basis and Purpose

 

Section 28-401.11of the NYC Administrative Code states that, “All licenses issued by the commissioner for which an examination is required shall expire three years from the date of issuance thereof, and may be renewed every three years thereafter without examination…”  

Oil-burning equipment installers are one such license type. For such licensees, 1 RCNY 47-01 currently requires a biennial renewal fee of fifty dollars. However, licensees actually receive a triennial renewal for fifty dollars.

Since renewal applicants are being undercharged twenty-five dollars for each triennial renewal, it is proposed to amend this rule to require a triennial renewal fee of seventy-five dollars.

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.  Certain provisions of that local law went into effect immediately. Among them were sections 28-304.6.4, 28-304.6.5 and 28-304.6.6 of the Administrative Code, which deal with elevator inspections and tests.

These provisions changed the timeframe for filing inspection and testing reports as well as certificates of correction.  This change was made to increase industry compliance by providing a more practical and adequate amount of time to correct defects and file a report.  Rule 103-02 is being amended to reflect the new provisions enacted by Local Law 141.

The Department of Buildings’ authority for these rules is found in sections 643 and 1043 of the New York City Charter and sections 28-304.6.4, 28-304.6.5 and 28-304.6.6 of the New York City Administrative Code.
