ECB Violations - DOB Issued

The Department of Buildings (DOB) allows anyone who has received certain types of Environmental Control Board (ECB) violations to have their hearings take place online, over the phone, or by mail. If you received a DOB-issued Notice of Violation, you can fight it without having to go to an ECB office for a hearing. Currently, certain types of Class 2 and 3 (B code) violations can be contested without an in-person hearing.

To find out if a DOB-issued ticket is eligible, you can visit the ECB website and enter the violation code listed on the back of the DOB ticket.
