A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring that city issued permits, licenses, and registrations that are required to be publicly posted include technology allowing direct access to further information.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
Section 1. Title 23 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new chapter 6 to read as follows:
CHAPTER 6
CITY ISSUED PERMITS, LICENSES, AND REGISTRATIONS
§23-601 Mobile access to additional information. a. Any permit, license, or registration that is issued by any city agency, and which is required by any law or rule to be conspicuously posted or otherwise visible to the public, shall include technology or technologies, such as a quick response code or a near field communication tag, by which an individual with a properly equipped mobile device may directly access publicly available information maintained online by the agency relating specifically to such permit, license, or registration. "Scan for more info," or other similarly descriptive text describing the purpose or use of the technology, shall be printed near the technology or technologies on the permit, license, or registration.
b. The requirements of subdivision a of this section shall not apply to any permit, license, or registration about which no publicly available information beyond that which is printed on such permit, license, or registration is maintained online by the agency issuing such permit, license, or registration. If publicly available information maintained by the agency beyond that which is printed on such permit, license, or registration is made available by the agency online subsequent to the issuance of such permit, license, or registration, the requirements of subdivision a of this section shall apply to the next issuance of such permit, license, or registration.
c. The department of information technology and telecommunications, or any successor agency, shall prepare and publish a technical manual specifying the appropriate technology or technologies for inclusion on such permits, licenses, and registrations, taking into account, at a minimum, the cost, accessibility, and potential usefulness of the technology or technologies, and shall review, and update as necessary, such manual at least once every two years.
§2. This local law shall take effect one year after its enactment.
