Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

 

The purpose of the proposed rule is to repeal rules which the Administrative Code, the New York City Building Code, and Mechanical Code now address.  The rules to be repealed relate to:

  • National Fire Protection Association, Flammable Combustible Code edition amendment to the Mechanical Code (1 RCNY 7000-01)
  • Smoke detecting devices and systems (1 RCNY 28-01), which does not apply under the 2014 Building Code, and the requirements for which are now found in Section 901.9.5.1 of the 2014 Building Code.   
  • Required carbon monoxide detecting devices and systems (1 RCNY 28-02) , which does not apply under the 2014 Building Code, and the requirements for which are now found in Section 901.9.5.1 of the 2014 Building Code.  
  • Rules of Procedure for amending, revising or promulgating Reference Standards (1 RCNY 37-01); the process for amending Reference Standards is now found in Section 103.19 of Title 28 of the Administrative Code.

Working with the City’s rulemaking agencies, the Law Department, and OMB, the Office of Operations conducted a retrospective rules review of the City’s existing rules, identifying those rules that will be repealed or modified to reduce regulatory burdens, increase equity, support small businesses, and simplify and update content to help support public understanding and compliance. The repeal of 1 RCNY 7000-01 was identified through this initiative.

The Department of Buildings’ authority for these rules is found in sections 643 and 1043 of the New York City Charter.

Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

Local Law 141 of 2013, which goes into effect on October 1, 2014, 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. 

The Department’s Referenced Standards are found in Chapter 35 of the New York City Building Code. Local Law 141 repealed Chapter 35 and added a new one.

This proposed rule will correct an error in the year of two of the standards listed in new Chapter 35 – ACI 318 for structural concrete and ANSI A10.4 for personnel hoists. The correction will conform them to the existing edition of these standards, as well as to the Building Code sections to which these standards are applied, which reflect the correct year’s language.

The Department of Buildings’ authority for these rules is found in sections 643 and 1043 of the New York City Charter and Section 28-103.19 of the New York City Administrative Code.
