Mission Statement:

The DBSC and the Division of Homeland Security & Emergency Services - Office of Fire Prevention and Control (OFPC) have collaborated on a Code Outreach Program to provide guidance and education on specific topics, including:

  • New topics that code enforcement officials/building inspectors must be aware of
  • Frequently overlooked or misunderstood code requirements
  • Concerns relating to the administration and enforcement of the Uniform Code and Energy Code.

If you have ideas for future topics to be addressed by the Code Outreach Program, email Cop.Codes@dos.ny.gov. Go here to subscribe or unsubscribe to the Code Outreach Program mailing list.
