State Certification Requirements for Modular Buildings

Currently, there are 33 states that require modular building certifications. Each of these states has a different process, requirements and Third Party inspection schedule to obtain individual building certification. Compliance with all modular building requirements is critical to the successful inspection and startup of a modular building project.


The process starts when all customer approved plans are sent to the state or to a third-party for review prior to manufacturing to ensure the building meets all the applicable codes. Not all state review processes are the same. All states have specific allotted time frames that they require to complete reviews and approvals. Changes to plans, unit or equipment affect approval and lead times. 

Once approved, the state affixes their seal, or label, to the modular building indicating that it meets all the necessary criteria for its intended use and location. This seal is required before the building can be shipped into that state. It is possible for a building to be multi-state labeled.  This allows the building to be relocated to other states after a temporary use.
