FISP Cycle 9 Starts Soon
It’s official: the DOB has adopted an amended rule governing exterior wall inspections and repairs, strengthening the existing Facade Inspection & Safety Program (FISP). The new FISP cycle—Cycle 9—begins on February 21, 2020. This amended rule is significantly more complex than previous cycles, with more rigorous reporting requirements, an increase in the number of physical examinations (“scaffolding drops”), more robust requirements for inspectors, and stiffer penalties for noncompliance.
We offer a detailed, recently updated guide to the intricacies of FISP on our website to help building owners get up to speed. But it’s more important to have a plan for compliance for your property. We can help!
