Environmental Control Board Proposed Rule

Environmental Control Board Proposed Rule

By Renee Sosnowski

The Environmental Control Board (ECB) proposes to amend its Department of Buildings (DOB) Penalty Schedule.

The proposed rule amends the Buildings Penalty Schedule by:

– Updating sections of law for certain violations (“Failure to provide pedestrian protection for sidewalks and walkways,” “New building or open lot occupied without a valid certificate of occupancy,” and “Failure to obey a vacate order”),

– Updating descriptions for certain violations (“New building or open lot occupied without a valid certificate of occupancy” and “Failure to obey a vacate order”),

– Deleting one existing violation (“Use of supported scaffold without a scaffold user certificate”), and

– Adding one new violation (“Scaffold training certificate card not readily available for inspection”).

There is a Public Hearing Scheduled for Tuesday, November 10, 2015, from 2:00pm to 3:00pm to discuss the changes.

The meeting will take place at:

NYC Environmental Control Board
66 John Street 10th Floor Conference Room
New York, NY 10038
