(a) Industrialized housing, housing components, industrialized buildings or building components bearing insignias of certification issued under this chapter will be deemed to comply with the requirements of building and related codes and ordinances enacted by local governments of the Commonwealth which codes and ordinances conform with the following:
(1) Are applicable to residential or commercial construction, plumbing, heating, electrical and other related codes pertaining to the construction and equipment contained within.
(2) Would otherwise be applicable to the industrialized housing, housing components, industrialized buildings or building components certified under this chapter as described in their building system documentation.
