Parking Structure Inspections


Beginning January 1, 2022, NYC Local Law 126 requires owners of parking structures to hire a NYS licensed and registered Professional Engineer (PE) to inspect the structure at least once every six years and file a report with the Department of Buildings documenting the results of the inspection, which include:

  • Buildings, or portions of a building, used for parking or storing motor vehicles, including space inside or under a building
  • Open parking garages and enclosed parking garages as defined in the NYC Building Code

This law aims to protect the public from parking structure failure and improve regular and routine maintenance of these facilities.

The DOB recently released an update regarding Periodic Parking Structure Inspection (as part of Local Law 126) that requires all Parking Structures within B- & C- Inspection Windows to have a one-time initial observation of the parking structure performed by or under the supervision of a Qualified Parking Structure Inspector (QPSI), with a form filed to the DOB by August 1, 2024. This is not required if a full report has been filed before this time.

Filing cycles will be broken down into 2 year sub-cycles by community districts.

The inspection windows for parking structures will be the following:
