Understanding Local Law 11
NYC Local Law 11, also known as Facade Inspection and Safety Program(FISP) was enacted in 1998 to curb the hazards and threats building facades posed. The law began in the 80s and was called Local Law 10, when a piece of facade fell off a building and killed a pedestrian.
Another tragic incident occurred again leading to the enactment of Local Law 11.
