Disciplinary Actions and Resolutions

The Department of Buildings investigates and commences disciplinary actions against five different categories of persons in the City's construction industry. Actions may be taken against individuals who are accused of abusing filing privileges; violating laws, rules, and regulations; performing work that requires a license or registration without a license or registration.

Voluntary Surrender

When faced with disciplinary action, a licensee or expediter may agree to surrender or suspend his or her license or registration in lieu of facing formal disciplinary action. Similarly, a Professional Engineer or Registered Architect may surrender or agree to the suspension of his or her privileges to file at the Department or utilize the Limited Supervisory Check and Professional Certification privileges. General supervision and discipline of Professional Engineers and Registered Architects with respect to their professional licenses is under the jurisdiction of the State Education Department/Office of Professional Discipline.
