The Building Codes Division has formed a rule advisory committee regarding a proposed rule that develops an alternative inspection pilot program for limited residential prefabricated construction.

Under this proposed rule, the division may waive cover inspections for residential structures intended for rent, sale, or lease in the state of Oregon if the manufacturer complies with the requirements of the rule. Those requirements include a detailed quality control program, successful construction/inspection of at least one unit, a third party warranty for the consumer, and auditing of the quality control program. The division will perform a final inspection.

This rule will not waive any other requirements for construction of prefabricated structures – plans and permits are still required. This is an alternative to the existing process, which will not change.
