Gas Piping System Periodic Inspection Certification

Within 60 days of the inspection, the owner must submit to the Department a Gas Piping System Periodic Inspection Certification signed and sealed by the licensed master plumber who conducted or supervised the inspection. The LMP must use the Gas Piping System Periodic Inspection Certification form (GPS2).

  • If the Inspection Certification submitted to the Department indicates that conditions requiring correction were identified in the Gas Piping System Periodic Inspection Report submitted to the owner, the owner must submit to the Department, within 120 days of the inspection, an Inspection Certification signed and sealed by the licensed master plumber who conducted the inspection, stating that the conditions have been corrected.
  • If the Inspection Certification submitted to the Department indicated that additional time was needed to correct the condition(s) identified in the Inspection Report, the owner must submit, within 180 days of the inspection, an Inspection Certification signed and sealed by a licensed master plumber stating that all conditions have been corrected.
  • Correction of conditions identified in the Inspection Report must be performed in compliance with the NYC Construction Codes, including obtaining any required work permits.

Buildings with No Gas Piping

Owners of buildings that do not contain gas piping must submit to the Department a Gas Piping System Periodic Inspection Certification, signed and sealed by a registered design professional, stating that such building contains no gas piping. This Inspection Certification must be submitted
once every four years by the end of the inspection date range for the community district in which the building is located.
All Gas Piping System Periodic Inspection Certifications must be submitted to the Department through the online certification submission portal located on the Department’s website. Access to the submission portal will be available prior to the commencement of the 2020 filing period.
Failure to file an Inspection Certification before the applicable due date may result in a
civil penalty of $10,000.00.

Unsafe or Hazardous Conditions
If an inspection reveals any unsafe or hazardous condition(s), the licensed master plumber must immediately notify the building owner, the utility providing gas service to the building, and the Department. The building owner must take immediate action to correct the condition(s) in compliance with the New York City Construction Codes and any required permits.
