I hereby agree to register for Accela Citizen Access with the New York City Department of Buildings (the “Department”).

PENALTY FOR FALSIFICATION: Falsification on any statement made while using efiling with intent to defraud or deceive is a misdemeanor and is punishable by a fine, imprisonment or both. I understand that if I am found guilty after hearing to have knowingly or negligently falsified or allowed to be falsified any certificate, form, signed statement, application, report or certification of the correction of a violation required under the provisions of the laws or rules enforced by the Department or of a law and/or rule of any agency, I may be barred from filing further applications or documents with the Department.  I agree that I will only submit documents related to jobs for which I am authorized by the owner and/or applicant of record to do so.
