Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

                     § 20-937 Record keeping assistance program. a. For the purposes of this chapter, the term “record keeping requirement” means any provision of the code or the rules of the city of New York enforced by the department and requiring that a person, as defined in section 1-112 of this code,  create or maintain records.

                     b. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the commissioner shall establish a record keeping assistance program. Such program shall allow a person that receives a violation for failing to comply with any record keeping requirement to have the civil penalty for such violation waived where such person (i) has not previously received a violation, which was not eligible for a cure period, for failing to comply with a record keeping requirement and (ii) attends a course that provides training in complying with such requirements and is approved by the commissioner.

                     c. In approving courses pursuant to subdivision b of this section, the commissioner shall ensure that that there is an approved course in English and each of the languages set forth in subdivision j of section 8-1002 of the code.
