Rangehood Consultation or Inspection Request

A Rangehood consultation or inspection will ensure that your fire suppression system complies with Fire and Mechanical Codes. By law, commercial cooking equipment must have independent exhaust systems. Rangehood systems must be inspected to make sure that they comply with regulations and that gas or electric service is secured before cooking can begin.


A consultation gives you an opportunity to meet with an NYC Business Acceleration member representing the Fire Department. The team member will evaluate your establishment's facilities for compliance with applicable laws and regulations and you will have the opportunity to ask questions. Inspections are conducted to ensure compliance with the laws and regulations. The inspector will help you identify ways to correct any problems discovered. Violations typically are not issued at a consultation, but may be issued during an inspection.


Consultations and inspections are best held before construction is complete, when duct work remains exposed and non-compliance can be more easily corrected. If you pass your inspection you will receive an FDNY Rangehood Letter of Approval.



Commercial eating and drinking establishments installing new fire suppression systems qualify for this service. Inspections for existing establishments or new establishments using existing systems should be scheduled with the Fire Department by calling (718) 999-2510.



A licensed master fire suppression contractor may request a rangehood test or a re-inspection.

A business owner may request a consultation or a re-inspection.
