What does the manufactured housing in plant inspection program do?

Our State of Oregon inspectors assure: 

  • Manufacturers follow their approved quality assurance manuals
  • Manufacturers follow approved designs (plans)
  • Part 3282.362-Manufactured Home Procedural and Enforcement Regulations 
  • Accordingly, our inspectors not only inspect individual units produced, but assess the effectiveness of the manufacturer's quality assurance system 

What don't State of Oregon inspectors do?

  • They don't approve designs of manufactured homes; this is done by a Design Approval Primary Inspection Agency (DAPIA). BCD inspectors assure that manufacturers are following DAPIA approved plans.

Did you know?
  • That manufactured homes are built to the Federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) standard

  • Each home is inspected during some phase of construction

  • That the State of Oregon is periodically audited by a HUD contractor to make sure we are effectively assuring that homes manufactured meet the manufactured housing standards. These are known as HBT audits
