The best way to avoid violations is to make sure your fire sprinkler system is regularly inspected and tested by a professional company. Common violations include: 

  • Paint all control valve handles and exposed piping for sprinkler system risers and cross connections.
  • Provide and maintain on the premises a record of the inspection, testing, and maintenance for the sprinkler/standpipe system.
  • Arrange for a 5 year test to be conducted by a licensed contractor and witnessed by the Fire Department.
  • Obtain or produce required Certificate of Fitness for the sprinkler/standpipe system.
  • Post a copy of the Residential Fire Safety Plan and Fire Safety Notice in a conspicuous location.
  • Provide and maintain monthly records for all portable fire extinguishers to be inspected.


Violations typically have a cure date of approximately 30 days after the violation is issued, during which time you can schedule the necessary repairs and testing to avoid the court date. All paperwork must be submitted by this date.
Failure to correct violations within the cure date will require you to attend the court date, which typically results in a fine regardless of whether corrections were made in the interim since the cure date.
If you miss your cure date and do not attend your scheduled court date, you will pay an additional fine. You must request a new court date with the Environmental Control Board (ECB).
An Environmental Control Board (ECB) violation is issued by the Department of Buildings when a property does not comply with a part of the New York City Construction Codes and or Zoning Resolution.
A DOB Violation is a notice that a property is not in compliance with some provision of applicable law and includes an order from the Commissioner of the Department of Buildings to correct the violating condition.
