The City of Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection (BACP) is reminding building owners that properties due for data verification in 2020 are expected to do so by June 1, 2020. However, BACP understands that on-site data verification is difficult during the COVID-19 outbreak. As such, BACP will be using its enforcement discretion to suspend enforcement of the Data Verification Requirement until June 1, 2021.

The next scheduled date that your property is required to complete data verification will be listed on the most recent Covered Buildings List. Please note, the compliance deadline for 2020 benchmarking reports has not changed from June 1, 2020. Read more here –>>
