Program Descriptions


The objective of this program is to protect the public's health, safety, and general welfare in buildings and structures designed for human occupancy through the enforcement of the relevant provisions of the California Health and Safety Code, including the State Housing Law, Employee Housing Act, Mobilehome Parks Act, Special Occupancy Parks Act, California Factory-Built Housing Law, and the Mobilehome-Manufactured Housing Act of 1980. The HCD works with factory and site-built building industries, stakeholders, and other government agencies to review, amend, and recommend incorporation of model building codes for conventional construction into California's building standards. The program also enforces federal and state standards for the construction, safety, sales, and titling of manufactured homes, mobilehomes, and commercial modulars.
