      • A line-operated zoned natural gas detecting system, designed in accordance with NFPA 715-2023 by a registered design professional, must be installed in all public corridors and public spaces

      • Exception (created based on feedback to the proposed rule): Where the existing space does not allow for installation at least 3 feet from a fuel-gas-burning appliance, or the manufacturer’s instructions or NFPA 715-2023 require installation in a different location, alarm installations must be placed in accordance with the manufacturer’s or the NFPA 715 location requirements
    • The alarm must be labeled with the name of the manufacturer

    • The alarm must be kept in good working order
    • Installer qualifications: Natural gas alarms must be installed by a New York City Licensed electrical contractor, who obtains all required permits.
    • Exception. Natural gas alarms that are powered either by battery or by plug-in AC receptacle may be installed by other than a licensed electrical contractor, including but not limited to the building owner, building maintenance personnel, or the dwelling unit occupant.
  3. Type of Detectors:

    • The detectors must be capable of detecting combustible gases, primarily natural gas or propane.
    • Detectors should be listed by a nationally recognized testing laboratory.
    • The alarm must be labeled with the name of the manufacturer
    • The alarm must be listed and labeled with either UL 1484 or UL 2075 as applicable

    • Specific timelines for compliance are provided within the law, and property owners must ensure detectors are installed within  May 1, 2025. Owners and managers can start installation now to ensure all dwellings comply on or before this date.
  5. Maintenance and Replacement:

    • Property owners are responsible for maintaining the gas detectors and replacing them according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
