The Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA) interprets the meaning or applicability of:
- Building code
- Fire code
- Multiple dwelling law
- Labor law
- NYC zoning resolution provisions
In certain cases, BSA has the power to vary these regulations for specific sites or projects.
You can appeal applications for your property that have been denied by enforcement agencies. You may only appeal after the Department of Buildings has given a ruling.
Contact the BSA Application Desk to get information about land use and development appeals.
