Important Updates

Updated 03/31/2021

UPDATE: Please be advised that the Plumbing Foundation will no longer be accepting credit card payments via Paypal as we have transitioned our billing system.

UPDATE: Please be advised that we have been informed by both Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. (“Con Ed”) and the Brooklyn Union Gas Company d/b/a National Grid (“Nat Grid”) that commencing April 15, 2019 both Utility Companies will be enforcing Operator Qualification in Covered Task 87 (conducting interior jurisdictional piping construction and maintenance activities). Only New York City licensed master plumbers (LMPs) and those working under NYC LMPs holding Operator Qualification in CT87 (i.e. they are in the Plumbing Foundation’s GOQ membership program and have obtained the e-Wallet Photo ID Card) will be accepted by the Utility Companies for certain construction and maintenance functions (Task Sheets Updated and Effective 03/31/2021).

As a reminder, Task 87 covers: “…isolation of piping systems (with approval from the Operator); purging of interior piping systems; making piping connections between interior deenergized piping systems and isolated, engerized piping systems, and constructing meter header assemblies, meter bars, and pressure regulator vent piping assemblies.”

NOTE: This is DIFFERENT than Local Law 150 of 2016 Department of Buildings gas qualification.
