New York State and New York City Licenses

New York State and New York City require that new licenses for the elevator industry be in place January 1, 2022. If you do work in New York State or New York City or both, you need to take action to apply for your new license as soon as possible, because there are steps in the process that require approval time from the jurisdictions.

On January 1, 2022:

(1) All mechanics will need a New York State license.
(2) In New York City, elevator mechanics and helpers require a city license or a work card.
(3) If you do work as a mechanic in New York City, you must apply for BOTH a New York State and NYC license.

For a New York State license: The online application system is open now. IUEC Local 1 has posted an information page on how to get a license in New York State.

For a New York City license or work card: The New York State license, or a confirmation email from the State Department of Labor that a license application is approved is needed to secure a New York City mechanic's license. Helpers do not need a New York State license. The online application system managed by the Department of Buildings in New York City is open now. You can view information and instructions on how to apply in New York City here.

New York City Private Employer COVID Mandate

On December 6, 2021, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced new requirements for employers to address COVID-19 in the workplace.

Key elements of the mandate:
  • Beginning December 27, 2021, workers in New York City who perform in-person work or interact with the public must provide proof of receiving at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. For Pfizer and Moderna recipients, the individual will have an additional 45 days to provide proof of receiving a second dose. The order provides for reasonable accommodation for medical or religious reasons.
  • Businesses may not permit an unvaccinated worker to come to the workplace with the exception of "a quick and limited purpose" (e.g., to deliver an item or to use a restroom). As defined, a workplace includes vehicles where work is performed with at least one other person.
  • The order imposes a series of record keeping requirements on businesses and further requires the completion by December 27, 2021, of a certificate affirming compliance with the order and the posting of the certificate in a public location.
