IBTS is the single source for manufactured home data used to identify whether a home was built according to the HUD Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards (HUD code) and, if so, how it was designed and constructed.
All manufactured homes built after June 15, 1976 are required to have one or more label(s) attached to them: a manufactured home HUD label(s) and a Data Plate/Compliance Certificate.
IBTS is the only agency that can provide manufactured home owners, real estate agents, brokers, and other stakeholders with a Label Verification Letter, which can suffice for missing HUD labels. IBTS can also provide a copy of the original data plate or a Performance Verification Certificate in its absence. The Performance Verification Certificate contains the zoning information in effect at the time the home was manufactured, including the location of the home’s destination (usually the retailer).
Manufactured home owners or other relevant agencies that need a replacement for missing HUD labels or Data Plate/Compliance Certificates should contact IBTS, not HUD.
