As of June 15, 2022, the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) no longer licenses auctioneer businesses (Auction Houses) and will no longer accept new or renewal applications. 

Local Law 80 of 2021 ended the requirement that a business must get a license from DCWP to operate a space where goods are sold by public auction. Businesses must continue to comply with all relevant federal, State, and City laws and rules.

Call 311 for assistance.
