Section: Definitions relative to development, promotion of energy, environmental technology.
The commissioner shall by rules promulgated hereunder establish a procedure whereby premanufactured systems intended for use in the State may, if entitled thereto, be issued a certificate of acceptability by the department at its place of manufacture. The procedure shall include a requirement that the manufacturer submit to the department detailed plans and specifications for the premanufactured system for approval in compliance with the requirements of the code.
It may also include a requirement that the manufacturer submit to the department test results on the premanufactured system, or its components, or any other material or information that the department considers relevant, or one or more of the premanufactured systems for testing and evaluation. The procedure shall require that premanufactured systems be inspected by the department or a qualified person selected by it, to determine that the premanufactured systems have been manufactured in accordance with the code and with the plans and specifications submitted to the department. Alternatively, the commissioner, after consultation with the code advisory board, may require that each premanufactured system bear the approved label of a qualified body selected by the commissioner. Said body shall have such follow-up inspection services as are satisfactory to the commissioner and shall certify that the premanufactured system complies with the code and with the plans and specifications submitted to the department. If an application for a construction permit specifying the use of a premanufactured system with a certificate of acceptability is submitted to an enforcing agency, and if the application complies in all respects with this act, the code and other applicable laws and ordinances, then the enforcing agency shall issue the construction permit within the time specified in section 13 hereof. At the time of installation, a premanufactured system with a certificate of acceptability shall be subject only to such nondestructive tests approved by the department as may be necessary to determine that it has not been damaged in transit or installation, and that it has been installed in accordance with the applicable construction permit and the code. The fees established and charged by an enforcing agency in connection with the granting of a construction permit on the basis of an application therefor specifying the use of a premanufactured system with a certificate of acceptability, or in connection with the inspection of the installation of such systems, shall bear a reasonable relationship to the costs incurred by the enforcing agency in performing such acts.
