Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

 

The Department of Buildings (DOB) is proposing to amend Section 101-06 of Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York relating to the duties, registration, renewal and discipline of special inspectors and special inspection agencies. The proposed amendments will address the following:

 

1) Clarify definitions of personnel within a special inspection agency;

2) Require that all applicants associated with a special inspection agency are subject to the provisions of Article 401 of Chapter 4 of Title 28 of the City Administrative Code;

3) Clarify the special inspection agency structure;

4) Clarify requirements and limitations for renewal applications of special inspection agencies; and

5) Direct that suspension or revocation of registration of a special inspection agency and the refusal to accept filings by a special inspection agency will be in accord with Article 401 of Chapter 4 of Title 28 of the City Administrative Code.


DOB’s authority for these rules is found in Sections 643 and 1043(a) of the City Charter and Section 28-115.1 of the City Administrative Code.

Statement of Basis and Purpose

Local Law 141 of 2013 (LL 141) and Local Law 41 of 2012 (LL 41), which become effective on October 1, 2014, are the final product of an effort to update 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, which are based on the 2009 editions of the International Plumbing, Building, Mechanical and Fuel Gas Codes. The updates of LL 141 and LL 41 reflect the unique character of the city and clarify and update the administration and enforcement of these codes as well as of the 1968 Building Code. 

1 RCNY 101-06, in effect since 2008 and amended in 2012, specifies the qualifications of special inspectors, special inspection agencies and their regulation by the Department of Buildings. The Department of Buildings now needs to revise 1 RCNY 101-06 to reflect the requirements of LL 141 and to make necessary updates to reference standard editions and definitions. 

Specifically, to make 1 RCNY 101-06 consistent with the requirements of LL 141, the proposed rule: 

  • Adds new and amends existing requirements for special inspection categories. 
  • Changes certain definitions. 
  • Updates reporting requirements. 
  • Updates the registration section 
  • Amends the section on powers of the Commissioner. 
  • Amends an appendix to incorporate the new titles and qualifications for the following special inspections: 
    • Mastic and Intumescent Fire-Resistant Coatings,
    • High-Temperature Hot Water Piping, and 
    • Post-Installed Anchors. 
  • Amends an appendix to include qualifications for the new “Raising and Moving of a Building” special inspection category, which was added by Local Law 29 of 2013.
