OTCR replaced the MEA Division. Local Law 33/2007 repealed all administrative sections regulating MEA, including sections 27-130, 27-131 and 27-133. Additionally, Local Law33/2007 enacted new administrative sections regulating materials and inspections, including sections 28-113, 28-114 and 28-115. OTCR will implement these mandates.
The Department will continue to recognize previously-issued MEA and BSA product approvals, as per section 28-113.2.6 of the administrative code. Furthermore, previously-issued approvals must comply with all relevant Code sections, Rules, Bulletins and other regulations.
The online MEA Index is a partial database of previously issued MEA Resolutions listed by Major Category. A complete set of the published MEA Index through 2003, including listings by MEA Number, Manufacturer and Subject, may be obtained from the CityStore.
