What is FISP, Local Law 11?

To keep buildings safe, owners of properties higher than six stories must have exterior walls and appurtenances, such as balconies, inspected every five (5) years – and they must file a technical façade report with the Department.

See NYC Construction Codes §28-302.1 and RCNY §103-04.

Property owners must repair dangerous conditions within 90 days of filing a technical report. Once the work is finished, owners must file an amended report within two weeks.All façade compliance filings must be submitted in DOB NOW: Safety. In DOB NOW: Safety you can:

  • Submit façade compliance filings and report unsafe façade activity

  • Make payments

  • View and search information related to your façade filings

  • Upload documents

  • View the status of a façade filing

  • Receive emails at milestones throughout the filing process
