Manufactured/Mobile Homes - Building Code Administration

Manufactured (Mobile) homes are governed by the U.S. Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, which provides that preemptive national standards for the design and construction of manufactured homes shall be developed and administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Approval of mobile home inspection agencies and mobile home plans is also now a responsibility of HUD or its agent. Maryland Regulation does, however, cover the functions of the Department as a State Administrative Agency under HUD programs.
