FDNY Certificate of Fitness

Certificate of Fitness C-14 Supervising Non-production Chemical Laboratories 

City of New York Fire Department requires that all non-production chemical laboratories require an individual holding a Certificate of Fitness for Non-Production Chemical Laboratories (C-14) to be present at all times during operation. The certificate is valid only at a specific location and for the specific person to whom it is issued. 

A non-production chemical laboratory is a building or portion of a building where chemicals or gases are stored, handled or used on a non-production basis for testing, research, experimental, instructional or educational purposes. A lab is considered to be in operation when it is open and a chemical that requires a Certificate of Fitness is being handled or used. All laboratories must be built to specifications set by the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB).
