Parking Garage Inspections


Condition Assessments of Parking Garages

(19 NYCRR Parts 1202, 1203, 1204)

EFFECTIVE August 29, 2018

The Department of State has adopted a rule that amends Parts 1202, 1203, and 1204 of Title 19 of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations. The amendments require cities, towns, villages, counties, and State agencies that are responsible for administering and enforcing the New York State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code (the Uniform Code) to require the owners of parking garages to obtain operating permits to operate such parking garages and have periodic condition assessments of those parking garages performed by qualified professional engineers.
