After an official review of the company application, FDNY will mail a letter of acceptance valid through the end of the calendar year. The company will have to schedule an inspection with the Fire Alarm Unit (inspection fees will apply) to receive a certificate of operation valid for a period of one (1) year.
The company must keep FDNY insurance records up to date in order to appear on the Approved List.
A complete company application, all pertinent documents and fees must be submitted for review to renew the company certification. It is highly recommended to submit all required documents for renewal at least four (4) weeks prior to expiration of company’s approval.
