WAC 296-150F-0500

When is an inspection required?

(1) Before we issue an insignia, each factory-built house, commercial structure, and component must be inspected at the manufacturing location as many times as are required by the codes. (See WAC 296-150F-0600.) Inspections may include:
(a) A "cover" inspection during construction of the unit before the electrical, plumbing, mechanical, and structural systems are covered;
(b) Insulation and vapor barrier inspection, if required;
(c) Other required code inspections;
(d) A final inspection after the factory-built house, commercial structure, or component is complete;

Each factory-built house, commercial structure, and component must have a serial number to enable us to track inspections.

(2) If we discover a violation during inspection, we will issue a notice of noncompliance. You can correct the violation during the inspection. If you cannot correct the violation during inspection, you must leave the item uncovered until we approve your correction.
(3) After a unit is manufactured but before occupancy, we must inspect a factory-built house or commercial structure if it is damaged in transit to the building site or during on-site installation. This is considered a repair inspection. (See WAC 296-150F-0540.)
(4) Approved design plans must be available in compliance with the applicable sections of adopted state codes.
(5) Once your unit is inspected and approved we will attach the insignia.
(6) Components shall be identified as having been approved by attaching an insignia to the first component and all additional components for one job site shall have a label issued by the department as having been approved.

We only inspect factory-built housing and commercial structures before occupancy. After occupancy, the local enforcement agency is the inspection agency.
