Avoid Boiler Fines for NYC Boiler Inspections
As of August 14th, 2017 the New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) will no longer accept paper or bulk fillings from vendors such as Insparisk or Praeses (JOL). All fillings must be entered into the new online platform, DOB NOW: Safety for Boiler Compliance Portal, by the inspector.
A requirement of the new system is that every building owner, or owners designee must be registered with DOB NOW. This is mandatory and must be completed so an inspection report can be filed. If the annual inspection is not filed, a $1,000 fine will be levied for each boiler not reported.
Owners can go to www.nyc.gov/dobefiling to register. If you have any questions, contact your B&G Account Executive or broker.
