LAA Filings: Fire Stopping Requirements

All members who have had sign off requests held up for fire stopping, should follow the instructions listed in this Service Notice. Please let us know immediately if you follow this published procedure and have any requests for sign-offs rejected. 

Previously the Limited Alteration Application (LAA) Unit required one of the following comments on LAA applications:

  • Fire Stopping will not be compromised.
  • Fire Stopping to be restored.

With the new change, in all instances where the fire stopping has been restored, the License Master Plumber or Licensed Master Fire Suppression Contractor must upload into DOB NOW: Inspections a signed and sealed statement on company letterhead with the following information at the time of request for LAA sign-off: All compromised fire stopping, as a result of the work filed under LAA (#xxxxxxxxx), has been restored to prior legal conditions as per Sections 713 of the NYC Building Code.
