Gas Piping Inspection ReportsHamoun Nik
February 13, 2023
New York City requires property owners to hire licensed professionals to conduct inspections of certain building systems on a periodic basis, and file resulting inspection reports with the Department. These periodic inspection programs help to promote safety for all New Yorkers, by catching hazardous conditions before a more serious problem arises.
Gas piping systems in all buildings citywide, except for one- and two-family homes, and other buildings classified in Occupancy Group R-3, must be inspected by a Licensed Master Plumber, or a qualified individual working for a Licensed Master Plumber once every four years.
The Department requires different neighborhoods to complete this inspection requirement at different times on a rolling cycle. Property owners in Community Districts 11, 12, 14, 15, and 17, in all five boroughs, are required to have these gas piping system inspections performed before December 31, 2023.
