Rule RCNY 104-24, which went into effect on April 14, 2013, contained a typographical error which was misleading in terms of establishing the requirements necessary for individuals applying for Class 2 filing representative status.
Class 2 filing representatives have all of the rights of Class 1 representatives, with an added level of qualification that allows them to attend appointments with plan examiners and DOB technical staff. They are qualified to sit in on plan review, audit review, pre-determinations and determinations.
The law as published suggested that applicants needed to either provide proof of education OR proof of training requirements. In fact, the DOB has always intended that applicants provide both proof of education AND training requirements.
