Submit to the Department payment of the appropriate civil penalties and filing of a current inspection report in DOB NOW: Safety. See the Boiler Violation Civil Penalty Reference Chart for information on paying the full civil penalties.

When a boiler in a multi-dwelling, SRO, commercial, or mixed-use building is removed and not replaced by another boiler, or if it is determined not to require filing annual inspection reports due to a major change such as a building renovation or demolition, submit a Boiler Removal Notification (OP49) in DOB NOW: Build within 30 days. A licensed professional must complete this notification. Failure to submit a Boiler Notification will result in late penalties of $50.00 per month. In addition, any DOB violations issued as a result of failure to submit a Boiler Notification within 30 days of boiler removal or jurisdictional status change are the owner’s responsibility.
