Statement of Basis and Purpose

The Department of Buildings (DOB) is proposing to amend section 104-09 of Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York relating to hoisting machine operators.  The amendments reflect the New York State Supreme Court’s decision that the portion of the current rule relating to out-of-state experience in an urban area of comparable density for a Class A Hoisting Machine License is invalid. 

DOB’s authority for this rule is found in Sections 643 and 1043(a) of the New York City Charter, Sections 28-401.6 and 28-405.3 of the City Administrative Code.

New material is underlined.

Statement of Basis and Purpose

 

The Department of Buildings (“Department”) is amending sections 104-01 and 104-02, and repealing sections 19-02, 19-03, and 19-04, of Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York (“Rules”). 

 

The Department amends section 104-01, regarding examination and investigation requirements for Department licenses, by clarifying examination and investigation procedures. Some Department license examinations were previously administered by the Department of Citywide Administrative Services, but all such examinations are now being administered by the Department.  These amendments accommodate the additional license examinations.

 

The Department amends section 104-02, regarding required insurance for trade licensees, by clarifying the requirements for commercial general liability insurance.

 

The Department also repeals sections 19-02, 19-03, and 19-04, as these provisions are addressed elsewhere in the New York City Administrative Code (“Administrative Code”) or the Rules. 

 

·       Section 19-02 concerns continuing education requirements for master plumbers and master fire suppression piping contractors. The substance of this rule is now addressed in section 105-03 of the Rules, effective September 15, 2013, which outlines the requirements for Department-approved courses. 

 

·       Section 19-03 concerns exemptions from Department inspection and testing requirements for minor plumbing work. These exemptions are provided by section 28-105.4.4 of the Administrative Code.  

 

·       Section 19-04 concerns the master plumber and master fire suppression piping contractor license board’s authority to review master plumber and master fire suppression piping contractor license applications. The substance of this rule has been already codified under Article 417 of Chapter 4 of the Administrative Code and section 104-01(c) of Title 1 of the Rules.
