VOLUME 2, ISSUE 3

NYC BUILDING'S GAS PIPING WORK

CIVIL PENALTY AMNESTY PROGRAM

A six month amnesty program will start on Wednesday, April 5, 2017, in which the Department will waive the civil penalties associated with certain previously issued violations for work without a permit on gas piping systems, provided that the owner obtains the proper DOB permit in the form of an Limited Alteration Application (LAA) and completes the job.  

Any associated Department of Buildings civil penalties for legalization of fuel gas piping systems or a violation for work performed without a permit associated with fuel gas piping systems will be waived if:

  • The work was performed or the violations were issued prior to April 5, 2017 and civil penalties have not been paid; and
  • Applicants obtain a permit to resolve the improper work between April 5, 2017 and October 5, 2017; and
  • Applicants have the job signed off by the Department one year from the day the permit is issued.

Gas Piping Work Civil Penalty Amnesty jobs may only be submitted as an LAA filing and be limited to the gas work only. Your Licensed Master Plumber will be able to autonomously handle this process for you.  

Larger gas work jobs (non-LAA or other non-gas work) included in the violation must be filed separately and are not eligible for the Gas Piping Work Civil Penalty Amnesty Program.
