Guidance on Business Customer Bill of Rights Distribution & Customer Feedback Meeting
Update on NYC Regulatory Review Recommendation #3: Establish a Business Owner’s Bill of Rights
Local Law 18 requires the Mayor’s Office of Operations to develop and agencies to disseminate a Business Owner’s Bill of Rights (BoR) before, during, or after an inspection. Many agencies currently distribute the BoR in various inspections and interactions. Operations is developing a renewed distribution effort to increase business owner awareness of the Bill of Rights. There are 1,766 inspectors at 7 agencies that perform 1.7 million inspections a year.
Current Distribution Means by Agencies:
•Central website (www.nyc.gov/bizrights)
•Card handed out during some inspections (DOHMH, FDNY)
•Link available on agency websites (DCA, DEP, DOB, DOHMH, DOT, FDNY, NBAT, SBS)
