Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
Section 1. Section 908.7 of the New York city building code, as amended by local law number 141 for the year 2013, is amended to read as follows:
908.7 Carbon monoxide alarms and detectors. Carbon monoxide alarms and detectors shall be provided and installed in accordance with Sections 908.7.1 through [908.7.3] 908.7.4.
 
      §2. Section 908.7 of the New York city building code, as amended by local law number 141 for the year 2013, is amended by renumbering section 908.7.3 as section 908.7.4 and adding a new section 908.7.3 to read as follows:  
908.7.3 Buildings that are equipped with a fire alarm system and that contain Group A-1, A-2, A-3 or certain Group B occupancies. Listed carbon monoxide detectors shall be installed in buildings that are equipped with a fire alarm system and that contain Group A-1, A-2 or A-3 occupancies or assembly spaces classified as Group B occupancies in accordance with Section 303.1, Exception 1. Such detectors shall have built-in sounder bases, shall transmit a signal to a central supervising station and shall be permitted to initiate an audible and visual supervisory alarm at a constantly attended location.
