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  The rules to be repealed relate to: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of Operations conducted a retrospective rules review of the City’s existing rules, identifying those rules that will be repealed or modified to reduce regulatory burdens, increase equity, support small businesses, and simplify and update content to help support public understanding and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.
