The licensed installer/transporter or an employee of the licensed installer/transporter who possesses a current certificate of training from the State Fire Marshal's Office must be present during the entire installation process. The owner or purchaser of a Factory-Built home is not allowed to transport said home unless the owner or purchaser is a licensed installer/transporter.

If the manufacturer's installation manual is unavailable for the installation, then the home must be installed according to the minimum standards set forth in this regulation.
