On July 15, 1976 a law passed by the U.S Congress titled The Federal Construction and Safety Standard Act, administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), was implemented. According to Manufactured Homes industry website The HUD Code regulates manufactured home design and construction, strength and durability, fire resistance, wind safety, energy efficiency, and overall quality. The HUD Code also sets performance standards for heating, plumbing, air conditioning, and thermal and electrical systems. That means manufactured homes are the only form of housing subject to a federally mandated national building code!
