[ Filed November 3, 2005, 8:40 a.m. , effective December 4, 2005 ]


Purpose: Factory assembled structures, chapters 296-150C, 296-150F, and 296-150V WAC, the electrical program adopted rules that directly impact the factory assembled structure rules. The factory assembled structure rules reference the electrical rules, which now states electrical plan reviews are not required for structures under 400 amp electrical service. Examples of these types of buildings are portable classrooms, educational facilities, city or county jail cells, prisons, small hospitals, MRI structures, or medical clinics. The factory assembled structure statute clearly states the program needs to conduct plan review on all systems within the structure. Therefore, we are adopting this rule making to ensure the statute and rules are consistent.

"Factory-built housing" is housing designed for human occupancy such as a single-family dwelling. The structure of any room is entirely or substantially prefabricated or assembled at a place other than a building site. It may also include a component. A factory-built house is also referred to as a "modular" structure. Factory-built housing does not include manufactured (mobile) housing. (See RCW 43.22.450(3).)

"Health or personal care facilities" are buildings or parts of buildings that contain, but are not limited to, facilities that are required to be licensed by the department of social and health services or the department of health (e.g., hospitals, nursing homes, private alcoholism hospitals, private psychiatric hospitals, boarding homes, alcoholism treatment facilities, maternity homes, birth centers or childbirth centers, residential treatment facilities for psychiatrically impaired children and youths, and renal hemodialysis clinics) and medical, dental or chiropractic offices or clinics, outpatient or ambulatory surgical clinics, and such other health care occupancies where patients who may be unable to provide for their own needs and safety without the assistance of another person are treated. (Further defined in WAC 296-46B-010.)

"Insignia" is a label that we attach to a structure to verify that a factory-built house or commercial structure meets the requirements of this chapter. It could also be a stamp or label attached to a component to verify that it meets the requirements of this chapter.

"Install" is to erect or set in place a structure at a building site. It may also be the construction or assembly of a component as part of a factory-built house or commercial structure.

"Institutional facility" is a building or portion of a building used primarily for detention and correctional occupancies where some degree of restraint or security is required for a time period of twenty-four or more hours. Such occupancies include, but are not restricted to: Penal institutions, reformatories, jails, detention centers, correctional centers, and residential-restrained care.

"Listed" is a piece of equipment, a component, or an installation that appears in a list published by a testing or listing agency and is suitable for use in a specified manner.

"Listing agency" is an organization whose business is approving equipment, components, or installations for publication.

"Local enforcement agency" is an agency of city or county government with power to enforce local regulations governing the installation of factory-built housing and commercial structures.

"Master design plan" is a design plan that expires when a new State Building Code has been adopted.

"Manufacturing" is making, fabricating, forming, or assembling a factory-built house, commercial structure, or component.

"One-year design plan" is a design plan that expires one year after approval or when a new State Building Code has been adopted.

"Repair" is the replacement, addition, modification, or removal of any construction, equipment, system, or installation to correct damage in transit or during on-site installation before occupancy.

(9) Plans to be reviewed by the department must be legible, identify the name and classification of the facility, clearly indicate the scope and nature of the installation and the person or firm responsible for the electrical plans. The plans must clearly show the electrical installation or alteration in floor plan view, include switchboard and/or panel board schedules and when a service or feeder is to be installed or altered, must include a riser diagram, load calculation, fault current calculation and interrupting rating of equipment. Where existing electrical systems are to supply additional loads, the plans must include documentation that proves adequate capacity and ratings. The plans must be submitted with a plan review submittal form available from the department.

WAC 296-150V-0320   What must I provide with my request for conversion vendor unit or medical unit design-plan approval by the department?   (1) All requests for design-plan approval must include:

(a) A completed design-plan approval request form;

(b) Two sets of design plans, specifications and test results and procedures necessary for a complete evaluation of the design;

(c) Receipt of the design-plan fee listed in WAC 296-150V-3000;

(d) Receipt of the initial design-plan filing fee and the initial design-plan fee.

(2) If a structural analysis or test is required for a concentrated floor load, at least one set of design plans must have an original wet stamp from a professional engineer or architect licensed in Washington state. All new, renewed, and resubmitted plans, specifications, reports and structural calculations prepared by or prepared under the engineer or architect's direct supervision shall be signed, dated and stamped with his or her seal. Specifications, reports, and structural calculations may be stamped only on the first sheet, provided this first sheet identifies all of the sheets that follow are included and identified in the same manner. Plans that have not been prepared by or under the engineer's or architect's supervision shall be reviewed and he or she must prepare a report concerning the plans. This report must:

(a) Identify which drawings have been reviewed by drawing number and date;

(b) Include a statement that the plans are in compliance with current Washington state regulations; and

(c) Be stamped and signed by the reviewer.

(3) Any deficiencies shall be corrected on the drawings before submitting to the department or be included in the report and identify as to how they are to be corrected. This report shall be attached to the plan(s) that were reviewed. We will retain the set with the original wet stamp.

(4) ((All plans required by WAC 296-46-140, plan review for health care facilities, require a separate electrical plan review and electrical plan review fees (see fees in WAC 296-150V-3000).)) Electrical plan review for educational, institutional or health care facilities and other buildings. Plan review is a part of the electrical inspection process; its primary purpose is to determine:

(a) That loads and service/feeder conductors are calculated and sized according to the proper NCE or WAC article or section;

(b) The classification of hazardous locations; and

(c) The proper design of emergency and standby systems.

(5) All electrical plans for new or altered electrical installations in educational, institutional, and health or personal care occupancies classified or defined in this chapter must be reviewed and approved before the electrical installation or alteration is started. Approved plans must be available for use during the electrical installation or alteration and for use by the electrical inspector.

(6) All electrical plans for educational facilities, hospitals and nursing homes must be prepared by, or under the direction of, a consulting engineer registered under chapter 18.43 RCW in compliance with chapters 246-320, 180-29, and 388-97 WAC as applicable, and stamped with the engineer's mark and signature.

(7) Plans to be reviewed by the department must be legible, identify the name and classification of the facility, clearly indicate the scope and nature of the installation and the person or firm responsible for the electrical plans. The plans must clearly show the electrical installation or alteration in floor plan view, include switchboard and/or panel board schedules and when a service or feeder is to be installed or altered, must include a riser diagram, load calculation, fault current calculation and interrupting rating of equipment. Where existing electrical systems are to supply additional loads, the plans must include documentation that proves adequate capacity and ratings. The plans must be submitted with a plan review submittal form available from the department.
