ECB Violations: What You Need to Know

Plans and maps on the table

Here at Pride and Service, we take the concerns of our customers very seriously. Anytime our customers have questions regarding their elevators, we like to provide an answer and a solution. Recently, we have been getting a lot of phone calls from customers asking about ECB violations: why they are receiving them and how can they solve the problem.

ECB stands for Environmental Control Board Violation. This violation is issued by the Department of Buildings when a property does not comply with a part of the New York City Construction codes and or Zoning Resolution.

There are three classes of Department of Buildings ECB Violations: Class 1 (immediately hazardous), Class 2 (major) and class 3 (lesser).  If you receive a Class 1 violation, you must immediately correct the violating condition and certify correction. Failure to certify correction will result in the issuance of a DOB violation with a $1,500 civil penalty.
