Manufactured Housing

Manufactured homes are built as dwelling units of at least 320 square feet in size with a permanent chassis to assure the initial and continued transportability of the home.

The Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner oversees licensing of Manufactured Housing professionals, monitors and evaluates in-plant performance and issues certification labels, issues permits for each installation and performs random inspections on installations performed by each installer, monitors retailer performance,  and handles consumer complaints. Further the office's Manufactured Housing division maintains databases of HUD labels, data plates (compliance certificates), and licensed professionals available for search.

Effective February 15th, 2021, the Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner along with the Manufactured Housing Division is pleased to announce the release of the NEW OCI Citizenserve Portal. The citizens of Georgia can access OCI Professional Services online to apply for professional licenses, submit permit requests, pay for services and file consumer complaints online.

HUD Labels

All transportable sections of manufactured homes built in the U.S. after June 15, 1976, must contain a HUD label. The label is the manufacturer's certification that the home section is built in accordance with HUD's construction and safety standards. HUD standards cover body and frame requirements, thermal protection, structural, plumbing, electrical, fire safety and other aspects of the home. They are published in the Code of Federal Regulations at 24 CFR 3280.
