All Gas Test and Gas Finish self-certifications will no longer be allowed for work done in the borough of Manhattan. Gas Test and Gas Finish inspections will now require a physical inspection by the DOB. All inspections must be requested using DOB NOW: Inspections. The system will break out different inspection types- Up to three floors, Up to nine floors, and greater than ten floors. When making the request, it’s important to identify if the inspection is for a Gas – Test or Gas – Finish.
While this change will also apply for all emergency work requiring Gas Finish inspections in Manhattan, all other emergency work will continue to be accepted as self-certified and submitted via DOB NOW: Inspections.
There is a detailed procedure to follow for emergency work notifications – to review this please click here.
