The Info You Need to Stay In Compliance

The Department of Buildings is a central New York City compliance agency that has jurisdiction over every structure within the five boroughs.

HPD enforces housing quality standards in residential properties across all five boroughs. HPD inspects housing complaints, issues violations, and runs enforcement programs.

The FDNY's administrative branch regulates fire-safety related permits, equipment, certifications, and more. The FDNY issues violations via the ECB and through an independent process, some of which can lead to criminal court and charges.

The ECB is a judiciary tribunal that doesn't issue violations, but instead hosts hearings for other NYC agencies issuing administrative violations. The ECB is also commonly known as the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings, or OATH.

While the Department of Transportation isn't property-focused, they do issue violations through the ECB for safety-related infractions, in addition to Sidewalk Violations.

The Department of Environmental Protection regulates building-related equipment to minimize environmental impacts. DEP-related violations are heard through the ECB.

The Department of Environmental Conservation is a New York Stage agency with jurisdiction over specific NYC properties and equipment, including petroleum bulk storage.
