About

Fire Department City
All non-production chemical laboratories require an individual holding a Certificate of Fitness for Non-Production Chemical Laboratories (C-14) to be present at all times during operation.

A non-production chemical laboratory is a building or portion of a building where chemicals or gases are stored, handled or used on a non-production basis for testing, research, experimental, instructional or educational purposes. A lab is considered to be in operation when it is open and a chemical that requires a Certificate of Fitness is being handled or used. All laboratories must be built to specifications set by the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB).

This Certificate of Fitness is valid only at a specific location and for the specific person to whom it is issued.
