DOB NOW Public Portal Launched

DOB NOW Public Portal Launched

Back in September 2016, we informed you of DOB NOW being launched in phases, starting with Plumbing and Sprinkler filings (viewable here).

We are pleased to update you again that a new online portal has opened as part of the Department of Buildings’ DOB NOW initiative.

Any fa├žade, plumbing, sprinkler, and standpipe applications filed through DOB NOW will only be available on the DOB NOW Public Portal and will not be found in BIS. All other data on a property, such as complaints and violations, may currently be accessed through BIS.

The DOB NOW Public Portal will eventually replace the BIS system (Building Information Search). This change will not occur until all applications are filed through the DOB NOW system. Until then, both the DOB NOW Public Portal and BIS system will need to be used to search applications.
