Filing Your 14 Year Report – Local Law 26 of 2004

Have you met all the requirements for NYC Local Law 26 of 2004? RDM can assess your compliance and ensure that your 14 Year Report is filed before the deadline.

Local Law 26 of 2004 – What is it?

Included in Local Law 26 of 2004 (LL26/04) is the requirement that all New York City commercial/office buildings over 100 feet in height must have a full system of automatic fire sprinklers installed by July 1, 2019.

The 14 Year reports prepared by a New York State architect or engineer will include the percentage of the building in which sprinklers have been installed, as well as how the remaining portions of the building will be made fully complaint.

Important Deadlines:

The 14 year report must be filed by July 1, 2018 with the Department of Buildings (DOB). Failure to file affidavits and reports on time will jeopardize the ability of the owner (or the owner’s successor) to claim a hardship extension of time to comply with the July 1, 2019 deadline.

How RDM can help:

Our specialized team is ready and willing to help you get your 14 year interim sprinkler report completed and submitted to the DOB. RDM will assess and take a walking survey of the building.  The reports will be completed by RDM’s in-house Class II Filing Representative at NYCDOB and have certification from RDM’s Architect of Record.
