§ 145.104. Reciprocal agreements.

 (a)  The Department is authorized to enter into agreements with the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development or with a competent authority within a state of the United States which has established under valid legislative authority a program for the certification of industrialized housing, housing components, industrialized buildings or building components under which each party to an agreement will recognize the certification issued under the laws, regulations and administrative procedures of the other party. An agreement must establish procedures additional to those set forth in this chapter and shall in respects be consistent with the act.

 (b)  The reciprocal agreement may also establish that acceptability of the competent state authority insignia of certification for industrialized housing units, components, industrialized buildings or building components shall be recognized by the Department instead of the provisions in § §  145.102 and 145.103 (relating to determinations of acceptability of certifications of a competent state authority; and issuance of insignia of certification).

 (c)  The inspection and evaluation agency fees outlined in §  145.94(a) and (b) (relating to fees) will not be charged to a competent state authority entering into a reciprocal agreement, as outlined in this chapter, using its own personnel for monitoring a manufacturer’s compliance control program and inspecting industrialized housing, housing components, industrialized buildings or building components.
