Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule
Local Law Number 61 of 2018 amended the Administrative Code by adding a new Section 24-154, which provides that, before the performance of mold remediation work in certain buildings, the New York State-licensed mold remediation contractor must file a notice of mold remediation with DEP no later than two business days before the project start date.
Section 24-154(c)(3)(b) further provides that notice may be filed within 24 hours after the project starts, instead of at least two days before, if the mold condition to be remediated poses an immediate risk of harm to any person or damage to property. The purpose of this proposed rule is to establish when such a risk of harm exists.
DEP is proposing this rule in conjunction with the Departments of Health and Mental Hygiene, Housing Preservation and Development and Buildings, as required by Section 24-154(c)(3)(b).
Consistent with the above, DEP proposes to promulgate the following rule as a new Chapter 53 in Title 15 of the Rules of the City of New York.
The Rule is authorized by Section 1043 of the Charter and Section 24-154(c)(1)(g) of the Administrative Code.
