New Crane Rule In Effect - CD1 Form Revisions


Effective January 1, 2016, RS 19-2 has been repealed and replaced by Rule 3319-01. The new Rule applies to cranes, derricks, and dedicated pile drivers that operate within New York City. Rule 3319-01 largely renumbers and republishes RS 19-2. The new Rule also strengthens and modernizes the Certificate of Approval (aka Prototype Approval) process. With limited exceptions, all new crane, derrick, or dedicated pile driver makes and models are required to obtain a Certificate of Approval.


CD1 Form Revision

The CD1 Form, which is required to obtain or amend a Certificate of Approval, has been revised to account for the changes in Rule 3319-01.Two versions of the CD1 Form can now be found on the DOB website, as well as updated instructions for each of the forms.


The CD1 Form is to be used by:


An owner or manufacturer of a crane, derrick, or dedicated pile driver to apply for a new Certificate of Approval; or

The manufacturer of a crane, derrick, or dedicated pile driver to apply to amend an existing Certificate of Approval.

The CD1-OA Form is to be used by:

The owner of a crane, derrick, or dedicated pile driver to apply to amend an existing Certificate of Approval.


NOTE: Only CD1 and CD1-OA Forms that specify a revision date of “12/15” (or later) in the bottom right corner will be accepted.
