How to Access your FISP Exterior Wall Condition Certificate
September 11, 2020
With the latest update from the DOB that requires building’s to post a copy of their FISP Exterior Wall Certificate from Cycle 8 or Cycle 9 in the lobby, we wanted to make sure you have everything that you need to meet this new requirement.
To access your certificate, you have two options: through the DOB NOW website or through an email request. This will depend on when your last FISP report was filed.
If you have filed a FISP report AFTER September 12th, 2016, you have the ability ACCESS and PRINT your building certificate and avoid the $500 violation fee from the DOB by taking the following steps:
DOB NOW Website
Step 1: Log into DOB NOW
Note: Only the original signatory or QEWI of the FISP report can access the Wall Certificate.
STEP 2: Place your cursor over the Safety button and select Facades
STEP 3: Ensure you are on the TR-6 tab and find the address you need the Wall Certificate for
STEP 4: Select Print Wall Certificate
STEP 5: Select Yes to confirm
STEP 6: Scroll down to the bottom of the certificate to print
IMPORTANT: If your building is SWARMP or Unsafe with SWARMP conditions, all repairs must be completed by the date on the certificate or the building is open to a Class 1 violation for Failure to Repair the SWARMP conditions.
If your most recent FISP report was filed PRIOR to September 12, 2016, please contact the Facades unit at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy for your building Conditions Certificate.
Key Things to Note:
If you do not have your certificate posted, you can receive a $500 violation from the DOB. Each time a DOB inspector visits your building and your certificate is NOT POSTED, you can continue to receive additional $500 violations.
If your building does not have a recent FISP report, you are still required to have a sign that states NO REPORT FILED in order to be in compliance.
