BIS Crane Notice Document Submissions & Payments in DOB NOW: Build

Starting May 3, 2021, all documents and payments for Cranes Notices (CN) still active in BIS (CNs initially filed prior to July 7, 2020) must be made in DOB NOW: Build.

DOB will no longer allow for in-person drop off of payments, plans, drawings, forms or supporting documentation for BIS CN renewals and amendments. These changes will only affect the documents and payments related to the BIS CN filings.

While documents will now be processed in DOB NOW (including objections and approval stamps), information related to the CN itself will still only show in BIS. These CNs will not be migrated to DOB NOW. BIS will continue serving as the system for these types of filings. Any information amended through the documents submitted in DOB NOW will be amended in BIS to reflect the changes.

Responses to objections to a Crane Notice amendment or renewal that has already been started in BIS can still be dropped off at the Cranes & Derricks Unit at 2 Lafayette Street, 12th Floor. CD7s for Tower Cranes will also continue to be submitted in the drop box until further notice.

Please review the Service Notice for full details.
