§ 145.105. Suspension and revocation.
(a) The Department, on the basis of its review of the applicable statutes, regulations and administrative practices and experience and other information that it may consider necessary for an informed finding, determine that its finding that the standards of a competent state authority, previously found by the Department to be substantially equivalent to this chapter, is no longer justified under the criteria in § 145.102(a) (relating to determinations of acceptability of certifications of a competent state authority) or the procedures for notification in § 145.102(b) are no longer effective. The Department will promptly notify third-party agencies and manufacturers with approved building system documentation or possessing insignia of certification issued to them under § 145.103 (relating to issuance of insignia of certification) of its finding. If requested by the Department, manufacturers possessing insignia of certification issued under § 145.103 shall promptly return the insignia to the Department and, upon receipt by the Department of the returned insignia, the fee paid by the manufacturer for the insignia will be refunded in full. No additional insignia of certification will be issued by the Department under § 145.103 with respect to industrialized housing or housing components certified by the competent state authority with respect to which the finding by the Department was made. In addition, the Department will be authorized to remove, or cause the removal of, insignia of certification theretofore attached to industrialized housing, housing components, industrialized buildings or building components certified by the competent state authority, if the Department determines that there is a substantial threat to the health, safety or welfare of the occupants of the industrialized housing or housing structures containing the housing components, industrialized buildings or structures containing building components unless brought into compliance with this chapter.
(b) The suspension or revocation of the certification of a manufacturer or third-party agency or of an industrialized housing, housing components, industrialized buildings or building components by a competent state authority shall automatically suspend the right of a manufacturer affected in a material respect by the suspension or revocation to utilize an insignia of certification issued to it under § 145.103. The manufacturer may thereafter request the Department to determine in writing those circumstances in which it may continue to use the insignia of certification.
(c) Nothing in this section shall be construed to limit or restrict the rights of suspension and revocation of the Department under this chapter.
The provisions of this § 145.105 amended under section 5 of the Industrialized Housing Act (35 P.S. § 1651.5).
