DOB Complaints and Violations

What is a Certificate of Correction?

A Certificate of Correction is a DOB-specific form for correcting all classes of DOB-ECB violations. The technical term for this is the AEU-2 form.

Certificates of Correction (Click here to view) must be filed with the DOB to prove compliance and close out all DOB-ECB violations. It’s a common misconception that proof or documentation given at the hearing will suffice – it will not. Certificates must be submitted directly to the DOB outside of the hearing in order to show compliance.

Per the DOB, submit all documents in person or by mail to:

NYC Department of Buildings
Attn: Administrative Enforcement Unit
280 Broadway, 5th Floor
New York, NY 10007
(212) 393-2405
8:30 am to 4:00 pm

Please note that FDNY Certificates of Correction are separate from AEU2 forms - not only are they different, copy-wise, they must be forwarded to their respective agencies in order to close open violations. Read more about FDNY Certificates of Correction here.
