Notice of Rule in Development

A rule currently in development would add a new Subpart 1208-6 to Part 1208 of Title 19 of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations.  The Department of State invites public participation in the rule development process.

Background

            Section 376-a of the Executive Law authorizes the Secretary of State to promulgate rules and regulations relating to training of personnel charged with enforcement of the Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code (the Uniform Code) and the State Energy Conservation Construction Code (the Energy Code).  Those rules and regulations are currently set forth in 19 NYCRR Part 1208.

            Section 376-a of the Executive Law was amended by Chapter 468 of the Laws of 2017.  The amendment provides that the rules and regulations relating to training of code enforcement personnel must include provisions that (1) establish minimum training and examination requirements to qualify for code enforcement officer certification; (2) provide for issuance of a code enforcement officer certification when an applicant satisfies such training and examination requirements; and (3) provide for revocation or suspension of the certification of any code enforcement personnel found after a hearing “to have materially failed to uphold duties of a code enforcement officer, including but not limited to, making material errors or omissions on an inspection report.

            19 NYCRR Part 1208 already establishes basic training and examination requirements for code enforcement personnel, and provides for certification of persons who satisfy those requirements.  This rule adds a new Subpart 1208-6 to 19 NYCRR Part 1208.  New Subpart 1208-6 implements the amendments to section 376-a of the Executive Law made by Chapter 468 of the Laws of 2017 by adding provisions relating to the revocation or suspension of certifications of code enforcement personnel who are found to have materially failed to uphold their code enforcement duties.

All commments are to be directed to Department of State, Division of Building Standards and Codes.
