HUD MANUFACTURING STANDARDS COME UNDER FIRE FROM GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE (GAO)
For example, updates to standards for site-built homes made in 2003 requiring a greater separation between
intakes and exhaust vents are only now being considered by HUD for manufactured homes. This update was recommended to HUD in
2010 by the Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee (MHCC), which is responsible for recommending proposed rule changes to
Similarly, requirements for carbon monoxide detectors adopted in industry standards for site-built homes and recommended by the
MHCC in 2009 have yet to be incorporated in the HUD Code. HUD did publish a proposed rule in the Federal Register in 2010 to
update aspects of the HUD Code but has not issued a final rule because the rulemaking process is ongoing.
Additional proposals, including the two above related to indoor air quality, are under consideration by HUD, but have not yet been
published as proposed rules. An estimated 5.5 million occupied manufactured homes were built under the HUD Code, according to
2009 American Housing Survey data.
Although HUD retains copies of approved designs of manufactured homes, the agency does not maintain data on the actual distances
between the air intakes and exhaust vents of each home. Further, once ventilation systems are installed in manufactured homes, HUD
does not require manufacturers to test their performance. For example, manufacturers are not required to determine if the systems
meet the requirements for the whole-house ventilation airflow rate, which quantifies the volume of air exchanged in the home over time.
