(certificates were previously known as insignias)
An installer (ADOH licensee) or a contractor licensed by the Arizona Registrar of Contractors (ROC licensee) shall complete and affix an Installation Certificate to each manufactured home, mobile home, single family Factory Built Building (FBB) or commercial FBB. A Certificate shall be provided by each installer/contractor who performs work on the home or building and each Certificate shall indicate the type of work performed by that Installer/Contractor. The work performed by the licensee must be within the scope of the licensee held by the licensee.
MODULAR MANUFACTURER CERTIFICATE
The Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH) issues Modular Manufacturer Certificates to properly licensed and certified manufacturers of commercial and residential Factory Built Buildings (FBBs). Each new manufactured module of each building installed in the State of Arizona shall display a Modular Manufacturer Certificate.
Existing buildings, not originally manufactured to Arizona requirements, being brought into Arizona for the first time, and existing buildings of unknown origin shall be inspected and assessed by a licensed and certified manufacturer of commercial and residential FBBs to ensure it is in usable condition or to determine what work must be performed to restore it to usable condition (this process of inspection and assessment is known as reconstruction). Reconstructed homes and buildings shall display a reconstruction certificate instead of a modular manufacturer certificate.
REHABILITATION OF MOBILE HOME CERTIFICATE
Mobile homes are homes built on a permanent chassis built prior to June 15, 1976 and prior to the implementation of the HUD Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards. Arizona law requires that "A person shall not occupy or otherwise use a mobile home which has been brought into this state or move a mobile home from one mobile home park in this state to another mobile home park in this state unless it meets minimum safety standards and displays the proper state insignia".
ADOH issues permits for the rehabilitation of mobile homes, followed by an inspection of the work performed to bring the home to minimum safety standards. The ADOH Inspector shall affix a certification of compliance for each unit in compliance with the rehabilitation requirements. Visit our Rehabilitation page for more information.
ADOH is the exclusive IPIA for the state of Arizona and is responsible for issuing HUD labels to Arizona manufactured home manufacturers. HUD labels are issued for new construction, to certified manufacturers only. If labels on existing homes are lost or damaged they cannot be replaced.
