Code Enforcement Activities of other NYS Agencies

The State of New York is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code (the Uniform Code) and the State Energy Conservation Construction Code (the Energy Code) with respect to buildings, premises, and equipment in the custody of a State Agency.  Each State Agency is required to prepare an Annual Report of code enforcement activities relating to buildings, premises, and equipment in the custody of the Agency, and each State Agency is required to notify the Department of State when its Annual Report is complete.  See 19 NYCRR Section 1204.14. 

Note:  A State Agency satisfying the conditions set forth in 19 NYCRR Section 1204.15 is permitted to apply for an exemption from these Annual Report and notification obligations.

The Department of State has prepared forms that State Agencies can use (1) to prepare the Annual Reports required by 19 NYCRR section 1204.15 and (2) to notify the Department of State when the Annual Reports are complete.  These forms are available here:

Annual Report Form (Reporting Year: 2013) (Please note:  Each State Agency that has not received an exemption must prepare an Annual Report containing the information required by 19 NYCRR section 1204.14.  The Annual Report must be completed by February 1 of each year, and must include the information pertaining to the preceding calendar year. This Annual Report Form is provided as a courtesy of the Secretary of State of the State of New York to assist State agencies in fulfilling their Annual Report obligations.  Use of this Annual Report Form is optional; a State Agency may use this Annual Report Form or a form prepared by the State Agency and containing the information required by 19 NYCRR section 1204.14.)

Notification Form (Reporting Year:  2013) (Please note:  Each State Agency that has not received an exemption must notify the Department of State of the completion of the State Agency’s Annual Report.  The notification must be provided within 30 days after completion of the Annual Report.  This Notification Form is provided as a courtesy of the Secretary of State of the State of New York to assist State agencies in fulfilling their notification obligations.  Use of this Notification Form is optional; a State Agency may use this Notification Form or a form prepared by the State Agency and containing the information required by 19 NYCRR section 1204.14.  This Notification Form is for notification purposes only and shall not be considered the Annual Report required by 19 NYCRR section 1204.14.)
