DOB NOW


DOB NOW is the Department’s new system for providing more efficient inspections, and for making online plan review and submission our default practice, as outlined in our Building One City plan.  It provides robust online accounts, making it easier to submit applications, make payments, schedule appointments, check the status of an application or inspection, pull permits, and make renewals.

DOB NOW four main components:

  • DOB NOW: Inspections  is the new name for Inspection Ready. All current functionality remains the same for online scheduling, tracking, and notifications as well as enforcement and development inspections.
  • DOB NOW: Build gives you online access to job filings, permits, and Letters of Completion.
  • DOB NOW: Safety gives you online access to compliance filings, such as for façades, elevators, or boilers.
  • DOB NOW: Licensing allows online exam filing, issuance, and renewal for Licensees. COMING SOON.
