Essential Construction Certificates of Authorization Updated

Posted on April, 17 2020

Governor Cuomo has extended the NY State of Emergency until May 15th.

Any application that has been granted an Essential Construction Certificate of Authorization by DOB, regardless of when issued, must log in to DOB NOW and print a new certificate, with a new expiration date, to post on-site.

If your site is already on the Essential Active Construction map we strongly recommend that Essential Construction requests are submitted for each application.

As a reminder, all construction sites must keep weekly inspection reports. Any site that requires a site safety manager, site safety coordinator, or construction superintendent must electronically submit reports to DOB via the DOB NOW system.

Please see our prior newsletter for more information regarding weekly inspection requirements.

To see the latest information released from the Department of Buildings monitor their new COVID-19 response page.

For Essential Construction Requests we have developed a Step by Step guide to assist applicants, available on our website here.
