This document “A Review of Manufactured Housing Installation Standards and Instructions” was created to serve as an aid for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, States, Manufacturers, and other involved in developing installation standards and instructions for manufactured housing as stipulated by the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000.

This document focuses specifically on installation criteria that are not presently addressed by the National Fire Protection Association Standard 225, “Model Manufactured Home Installation Standard.” As manufactured homes become increasingly complex and require significant completion at the site, there arise multifaceted issues that are not considered by the NFPA Standard.

This document raises issues for analysis that can be used by all relevant parties in their discussions regarding needed elements for the development of comprehensive installation standards and manufacturers’ installation instructions.
