The purpose of this rulemaking is to amend the factory assembled structures rules for review and approval of design plans by licensed professional engineers, architects, and firms for commercial coach trailers, factory-built housing and commercial structures, recreational park trailers (also known as park model recreational vehicles and park trailers), recreational vehicles, and conversion vendor units. Since 2021, L&I has adopted emergency rules (WSR 22-01-190, WSR 22-09-063, WSR 22-17-070, WSR 23-01-038) allowing third party reviews by approved licensed professionals to reduce a backlog of design plans for review and approval in the FAS Program. The emergency rule clarifies the procedures for review and approval of design plans for commercial coaches and factory-built and commercial structures by licensed professional engineers, architects, or firms under chapters 296-150C and 296-150F WAC. The emergency rules also allow licensed professionals or firms to review and approve design plans for recreational park trailers, recreational vehicles, and conversion vendor units under chapters 296-150P, 296-150R, and 296-150V WAC. This rulemaking proposes the adoption of permanent rules.
