The New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) has recently announced an NYC DOB Civil Penalty Increase, which is crucial for all involved in the construction industry to understand and comply with. This increase pertains to the penalties for failing to file an acceptable Certificate of Correction for an Immediately Hazardous Class 1 Summons (AEUHAZ).
Effective from May 15, 2022, the NYC DOB Civil Penalty Increase has raised the penalty from $3,000 to $5,000. This applies to summonses issued for an immediately hazardous condition at a construction site that is not a one- to four-family home.
To pay an Immediately Hazardous Violation Civil Penalty fee, you need to log into eFiling and select Express Cashier Payments and Hazardous Violation Fees. Payments can be made by eCheck or credit card, with a 2% service charge for credit card payments. In-person or mail payments are not accepted.
A Certificate of Correction request must be submitted to resolve an open OATH summons. Certificate of Correction documents can be uploaded using an eFiling account to log into DOB NOW. For more detailed information, you can view the actual notice on the NYC Department of Buildings website.
