Two Days Cut From Turn-Around Time for Modular Labels

South Carolina has cut two days off the time it takes to issue a label approving a modular home.

Two main changes are a new system for electronic payment for plan approval and a process where labels can be sent electronically and printed out by the third-party inspector. The two steps, sending a check and shipping labels, each added a day to the process, even when next day shipping services were used.

MHISC and its modular affiliate, SCMHI, began talking with the SC Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation in 2012 about ways to eliminate delays in plan review and label issuance.

Roger Lowe, Administrator for the State Building Code Council (BCC), worked with agency IT people to implement the new innovations, according to Council Member Henry Drury.

We really appreciate the can-do attitude of Mr. Lowe and his staff," Drury said. "A lot of thought and work went into these new systems."

MHISC and it modular affiliate, the SC Modular Housing Institute (SCMHI) will keep members informed as the new systems are implemented.

MHISC is the voice of the manufactured and modular home industries in South Carolina.
