USDA/RHS RIN: 0575-AC77 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: Planning and Performing Construction and Other Development To Conform to Current Market/Industry Standards 
Abstract: The Rural Housing Service (Agency) is amending its 1924-A regulation to be consistent with other current Agency requirements and Federal agency criteria. This regulation amendment includes the following changes: 1) New information is incorporated to update the thermal standards guidance for manufactured housing and updated pest control documentation forms are added for existing home purchases; 2) requirements for providers of Insured 10-Year Home Warranty Plans will no longer be maintained by the Agency; the Agency will adopt current HUD criteria to govern the requirements; 3) the Agency will no longer perform extensive construction inspections. In most cases, the Agency will perform final inspections. In other cases, the Agency will perform progress inspections, when the locality does not have the resources; 4) the International Code Council is added to the list of acceptable model building codes and the new Energy Act is applied to the thermal standards; 5) the perimeter foundation wall is no longer required for manufactured housing financed under the guaranteed single-family housing program; and 6) Agency guides are updated to reflect recent revisions to the American Institute of Architects contract documents.
