L&I is proposing a fee increase for permits, inspections, and other services for factory-assembled structures. A fee increase is needed to support operating expenses for L&I’s FAS Program. L&I is also considering housekeeping changes. If adopted, the rules would take effect November 1, 2022. See WSR 22-13-147.
L&I filed an emergency rule (CR-103E) on April 19 (WSR 22-09-063), to expedite plan review for modular buildings, among other structures. This is an extension of the procedure already in place in the Washington Administrative Code (WAC). The emergency rule allows customers to use an agency-approved licensed professional engineer or architect to review plans for factory-built structures, recreational park trailers, recreational vehicles, and conversion vendor units (such as food trucks). The emergency rule also clarifies what a design plan submission must include and how to submit design plans for approval for commercial coaches and factory-built housing and commercial structures. The emergency rule is set to expire on August 17. L&I is planning to file a third emergency rule to renew the rule for another 120 days. L&I is also planning to file a CR-101 Preproposal Statement of Inquiry to consider permanent rules.
Updates on the status of these rulemakings will be provided during the quarterly FAS Advisory Board meeting.
