DOB Elevators

What is an ACC1?

An ACC1 is an administratively issued violation for failure to file an Affirmation of Correction on an Unsatisfactory Category 1 inspection. Because these violations are standard (not variable) and administratively issued, there are no associated copies.

The civil penalty for an ACC1 is $3,000 per noncompliant device – the same as if a Category 1 test was never filed in the first place. Violations dated prior to 2014 were issued one per building and require a penalty sheet to determine impacted devices and the full civil penalty.

To resolve an ACC1, pay the full civil penalty with the Elevator Division at the Department of Buildings. To challenge an ACC1, provide proof of the timely, filed Affirmation of Correction along with a copy of the cancelled check for the filing fee to the Elevator Division within 30 days of issuance of the violation.

As of June 2020, you must pay fines for administrative elevator violations (including the ACC1) online via DOB NOW. You must also request penalty waivers online. Read SiteCompli's Blog Post for more updates.
