Chapter 1. General Provisions And Definitions of California Health And Safety Code >> Division 13. >> Part 6. >> Chapter 1.
This part shall be known and may be cited as the "California
Factory-Built Housing Law."
The Legislature hereby finds and declares that in an effort
to meet the housing needs within the State of California, the private
housing and construction industry has developed mass production
techniques which can substantially reduce housing construction costs,
and that the mass production of housing, consisting primarily of
factory manufacture of dwelling units or habitable rooms thereof,
presents unique problems with respect to the establishment of uniform
health and safety standards and inspection procedures. The
Legislature further finds and declares that by minimizing the
problems of standards and inspection procedures, it is demonstrating
its intention to encourage the reduction of housing construction
costs and to make housing and home ownership more feasible for all
residents of the state.
