09.12.52.01. Authority and Scope
A. This chapter is adopted pursuant to Public Safety Article, § 12-305, Annotated Code of Maryland, in order to implement, interpret, make specific, and otherwise carry out the provisions of Public Safety Article, Title 12, Subtitle 3, Annotated Code of Maryland, known as the Industrialized Building and Manufactured Homes Act.
B. Former regulations as originally adopted effective July 1, 1972, included industrialized buildings and manufactured homes. The HUD Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards superseded the State standards for manufactured homes on June 15, 1976. Approval of manufactured home inspection agencies and manufactured home plans is also now a responsibility of HUD or its agent, so these regulations pertain primarily to industrialized buildings. Regulation .15 does, however, cover the functions of the Department as a State Administrative Agency under HUD programs. Related manufactured home functions, such as handling of consumer complaints and monitoring of primary inspection agencies, are not covered by this chapter.(Regulation .01 recodified from 05.02.04.01 effective 46:6 Md. R. 345, eff. 3/25/2019)
