HUD/OH RIN: 2502-AJ49 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: Update to the Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Regulations (FR-6149) 

This rule amends the Federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards by adopting certain recommendations made to HUD by the Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee (MHCC). The National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974 (the Act) requires HUD to publish all proposed revised construction and safety standards submitted by the MHCC. This final rule is largely based on the third set of MHCC recommendations to update and improve various aspects of the Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards. HUD has reviewed those proposals and has made several editorial revisions and correlating additions to the proposals which were reviewed and accepted by the MHCC. Consistent with the recommendations from the MHCC, as amended by HUD, this rule adds new standards that establish requirements for carbon monoxide detection, stairways, fire safety considerations for attached garages and attached carports, and for multi-story homes and attached homes (i.e., zero lot line) and establishes requirements for venting systems to ensure that proper separation is maintained between the air intake and exhaust systems.
