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.
