A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring asbestos surveys and abatement after certain catastrophic events

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 28 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 28-106.5 to read as follows:

§ 28-106.5 Asbestos survey and abatement after certain catastrophic events. Where the structure of a building has been thoroughly damaged or disturbed due to a catastrophic event, such as a collapse, explosion or impact which has a severe material and detrimental effect on the structural integrity of a building, the owner of such building shall conduct a survey to determine if asbestos-containing materials were impacted or disturbed by such event. Upon a determination by a certified asbestos investigator that such asbestos-containing materials were impacted or disturbed, such building shall require asbestos abatement to the extent determined by such investigator and as required by the rules of the department of environmental protection. The department of environmental protection shall promulgate rules in furtherance of the provisions of this section.

 

§ 2. This local law takes effect 120 days after it becomes law, except that the department of environmental protection shall take such measures as are necessary for the implementation of this local law, including promulgation of rules, prior to such date.
