2015 FAS Rule Development

The Factory Assembled Structures (FAS) program is planning amendments to sections of Chapter 296-150M WAC for manufactured homes. The program reviews the rules on a regular basis to ensure consistency with federal and national safety code requirements and industry standards, to clarify the existing rules, perform housekeeping, etc.

The following is draft language of proposed rule changes: Chapter 296-150M WAC Draft Language (218 KB PDF).
