These notes are not a part of ECB’s Rules

This document might include rule changes not yet shown in official RCNY Publications: When ECB has recently enacted a final rule, it is possible that – even though the rule change is reflected in this document - the rule change will not yet have been printed in a hard-copy or soft-copy published version of the Rules of the City of New York (RCNY). However, once an ECB rule becomes final, that rule is officially a part of the RCNY. This document reflects final ECB rules (including ECB Penalty Schedules) that became effective on or before January 8, 2009. However, this document may be formatted differently than the officially published version of the Rules

ECB Rules are found in Title 48, Chapter 3 of the RCNY: ECB’s rules, including its Penalty Schedules, were previously included in Chapter 31 of Title 15 of the RCNY. However, as of November 23, 2008, ECB was consolidated with the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH). As a result, ECB’s rules are now included in Chapter 3 of Title 48 of the RCNY.
