12 Pa. Code § 145.2. Purpose.

§ 145.2. Purpose.

 This chapter interprets and makes specific the provisions of the act, as provided in section 5 of the act (35 P.S. §  1651.5). This chapter establishes administrative procedures for the implementation of the act which will facilitate the use of industrialized housing, buildings, and housing or building components in this Commonwealth consistent with safeguarding the health, safety and welfare of citizens of this Commonwealth and will carry out the purposes set forth in the legislative findings in section 2 of the act (35 P.S. §  1651.2). More specifically, this chapter is intended primarily to achieve the following objectives:

   (1)  Establish uniform standards affecting health, safety and welfare for the design, use of materials and methods of construction for industrialized housing, buildings, and housing or building components intended for sale, lease or installation for use in this Commonwealth.

   (2)  Establish uniform procedures to assure that industrialized housing, buildings, and housing or building components intended for sale, lease or installation for use in this Commonwealth will be manufactured, transported and installed in compliance with the uniform standards adopted by this chapter. In particular, this chapter establishes procedures under which the essential structural, electrical, mechanical and plumbing elements of industrialized housing, buildings, and housing or building components are subjected to compliance assurance procedures, including inspections, in the manufacturing facilities during the manufacturing process, thereby eliminating the need for subsequent inspections at the building site of those elements which are enclosed within the walls which might otherwise be subjected to disassembly, damage or destruction in the course of onsite inspections.

   (3)  Establish procedures which will facilitate the movement of industrialized housing, buildings, and housing or building components between this Commonwealth and the other states for the mutual benefit of the manufacturers and citizens of this Commonwealth.

   (4)  Preserve for local governments within this Commonwealth responsibilities and functions specifically reserved to local governments by the act and otherwise not inconsistent with the achievement of the purposes of the act.

Authority

   The provisions of this §  145.2 amended under section 5 of the Industrialized Housing Act (35 P.S. §  1651.5).
