Plan Examination


The Administrative Provisions in Chapter 1 of Title 28 of the NYC Administrative Code that govern the NYC Construction Codes including the NYC Building Code require that construction documents must be complete when a project application is submitted by the applicant. Chapter 1 of Title 28 of the Administrative Code states that “Construction documents shall be complete and of sufficient clarity to indicate the location and entire nature and extent of work proposed, and shall show in detail that they conform to the provisions of this code and other applicable laws and rules…” (Admin Code §28-104.7; See also BC 106).

For all BIS job filings, applicants seeking a review of their building plans must make a Plan Examination appointment. Applicants can either request an appointment in person at a borough office or schedule an appointment online using the online Appointments System.

Applicants seeking to make Plan Exam appointments in the online Appointments system must file a registration form with the Department. Once registered, applicants can schedule appointments online by entering their unique Buildings ID, PIN Number, BIS Job number and BIS Document number.
