Title: Economic Growth Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act: Implementation of New Physical Conditions Inspection Standards (FR-6086) 

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016 directed HUD to implement a single inspection protocol for public housing and voucher units. In addition, Section 38(c) 1 of the Economic Growth Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act requires that program inspections apply existing physical inspection standards for projects assisted under Section 8 of the 1937 Act to small and predominantly rural Public Housing Agencies. Accordingly, this proposed rule would revise HUD's physical inspection standards for assisted and insured housing programs. Under the proposed rule, a single inspection standard would be adopted in place of the current differing standards that exist across some programs. HUD believes the inspection standard alignment would improve HUD’s oversight while ensuring tenants live in decent, safe, and sanitary housing that is in good repair.
