Per the 2008 NYC Building Code, the New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) requires Special Inspections in NYC to be conducted for all construction projects. These Special Inspections are conducted to ensure construction work is completed in accordance with all applicable building codes, and NYC DOB approved plans and specifications. These type of inspections must be conducted by an NYC DOB registered Special Inspection Agency via a TR-1, as no other sign-off will be accepted.
