New York City’s “Facade Inspection Safety Program” (FISP), also known as Local Law 11/98, requires that owners of buildings exceeding six stories in height inspect their exterior walls and appurtenances (such as balconies and guardrail systems) at an interval of every five years in order to assure that all aspects of the façade are in a safe condition. The DOB requires that the owner retain the consulting services of a Qualified Exterior Wall Inspector (QEWI), who provides the client with a comprehensive evaluation of the building facade by conducting visual inspections of the exterior of a building to determine whether the exterior walls and its appurtenances are either Safe, Unsafe, or Safe With A Repair and Maintenance Program (SWARMP) and whether they require remedial work.
