Wash. Admin. Code § 296-150V-0500 - When is an inspection required?

(1) Before we issue an insignia, each unit manufactured or converted must be inspected as many times as required to show compliance with this chapter.
(2) Before we issue an insignia, a conversion vendor unit or medical unit must be inspected at the manufacturing location as many times as required. Inspections may include, but are not limited to:
(a) A "cover" inspection during construction of the unit before the electrical, plumbing, mechanical, and structural systems (if required) are covered;
(b) Insulation and vapor barrier inspection, if required; and
(c) A final inspection after the conversion vendor unit or medical unit is complete.
(3) If we discover a violation during inspection, we will issue a notice of noncompliance. You can correct the violation during the inspection. If you cannot correct the violation during inspection, you must leave the item uncovered until we approve your correction.
(4) If a conversion vendor unit or medical unit is damaged in transit to the building site or during on-site installation, it must be inspected. This is considered an alteration inspection. (See WAC 296-150V-0240.)
(5) Approved plans must be available.
(6) Once your unit is inspected and approved we will attach the insignia. Before we issue an insignia, each conversion vendor unit or medical unit is inspected as follows:
(a) Inspection(s) during conversion or alteration of a conversion vendor unit or medical unit; and
(b) A final inspection after the conversion vendor unit or medical unit is complete.

Note:

Each conversion vendor unit or medical unit must have a serial number so we can track inspections.
