Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB; Technical Suitability of Products Program
The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. HUD is requesting continued approval to require an application for acceptance of products for use in structures approved for mortgages or loans insured under the National Housing Act. Under the established Technical Suitability of Products (TSP) program, manufacturers (sponsors) of nonstandard housing-related materials, products, or structural housing systems must apply to HUD for a determination of technical acceptance. The two major categories of acceptance are: (1) Structural building systems, subsystems, and components; and (2) structural and nonstructural materials and products.
