Don’t Forget About Gas Piping Inspection! Expert Advice from Local Law 152 Inspection Plumbers

As 2022 draws to a close, it’s vital for property owners and managers to make sure required yearly tasks have been completed for the city. One of New York’s most stringent calendar items is gas piping inspection. Here’s what you need to know, from Local Law 152 inspection plumbers who actually perform gas piping evaluations and can answer all your questions in order to stay in compliance.

What Is Local Law 152?

Regulations related to gas piping inspection

Local Law 152 was first implemented in 2019 in New York City. It requires all R-3 class dwellings, with the exception of one- and two-family homes, to undergo gas piping inspection every four years on a rotating schedule determined by the city.

What Is the New York City Schedule for Local Law 152 Inspections?

Timetable for 2022 through 2024

The city decides in what year your building must have its Local Law 152 gas piping inspection. Within that calendar year, you are free to arrange for the inspection on your own. However, you need to allow enough time to complete the inspection and submit the paperwork before December 31st. Otherwise, your property may be subject to citations and fines from the city, as well as gas shutoff if failure to complete your inspection goes on long enough.

Below is the schedule for the remainder of 2022, 2023, and 2024. Inspections are scheduled by community districts for all five boroughs.

Date Range for Inspections                        Buildings in Community Districts

January 1, 2022 – December 31, 2022       4, 6, 8, 9, and 16 in all boroughs

January 1, 2023 – December 31, 2023        11, 12, 14, 15, and 17 in all boroughs

January 1, 2024 – December 31, 2024        1, 3, and 10 in all boroughs

If you’re not sure which community district contains your property, it’s easy to check online with the Department of City Planning.

Don’t see your community district listed above? That means you should have had your inspection in 2021, which also may have included some 2020 inspections delayed by the pandemic. Your next inspection won’t be due until 2025.

What if you don’t have gas piping in or on your property? You must submit documentation to that effect, without undergoing an inspection. The documentation must be given to the Department of Buildings (DOB) and be signed by a licensed design professional, such as an architect.

Why Do We Issue So Many Reminders About Gas Piping Inspection?

Our mission as LMPs

If you follow our blog, you’ll notice that we frequently post reminders about Local Law 152 gas piping inspection. There are multiple reasons for this.

First, Sanitary Plumbing are licensed master plumbers (LMPs). As such, we are the only entities allowed to perform Local Law 152 inspections. Our schedule gets busy towards the end of the year, and we want to make certain our clients are able to book inspections and other work in a timely fashion.

We understand property owners and managers get busy with many tasks, so we don’t want them to fall afoul of the city regulations. By posting many reminders about gas piping inspections, we help ensure they stay current with the law. Since 2022 only has a few more months in it, this is the perfect time to remind everyone that inspections yet to be completed must be scheduled right away.

Finally, gas piping inspection is an important safety measure for everyone in the city. If you have a problem with your gas piping, it can lead to health problems for your occupants, maintenance staff, neighbors, and even first responders. This is why Local Law 152 was created in the first place.

How Does Gas Piping Inspection Work?

The process explained

We inspect all gas piping in your building, including the meters and where it enters the property from the city supply. Other areas that are inspected include the boiler room, exposed piping, and public areas with gas piping.

Then, we send the property owner a GPS1 Gas Piping Periodic Inspection Report within 30 days. The property owner must next file a GPS2 Gas Piping System Periodic Inspection Certification, completed and signed by the LMP. This must be done within 60 days of the inspection. The DOB makes this a simple, no-charge process using a dedicated Local Law 152 portal.

Property owners must keep all documentation related to Local Law 152 gas piping inspection for 10 years.

What If Our Inspection Uncovers a Problem?

Methods for remediation

Occasionally, there are problems with a property and it does not pass inspection. The issue should be fixed within 120 days of the original inspection. However, you can apply for an additional 60 days’ time, provided you do this right away at the time of inspection failure. The LMP must then document that the problem has been remedied, and the proper paperwork, as described above, must be submitted, no later than 180 days from the first inspection date.

Is Your Property Required to Undergo Gas Piping Inspection in 2022?

Don’t delay

Warm early fall days make it all too easy to forget the holidays and winter will soon be arriving. You don’t want to be trying to schedule gas piping inspection during this busy period, when everyone is trying to squeeze in pipe insulation, radiator checks, and other projects to get ready for cold weather. We recommend allowing for a time buffer in case you need to fix any problems that prevent passing.

If your building still needs to have its Local Law 152 inspection, don’t wait! Call Sanitary Plumbing today at 212-734-5000 for your free estimate so you can relax and focus on other year-end tasks.
