Application and Scope
The occupational licensing requirements of the Health and Safety Code and Department regulations apply to all manufacturers, distributors, dealers, and salespersons who manufacture and sell or lease new or used manufactured homes, mobilehomes, or commercial coaches within California.

Local governments become involved only when a district attorney prosecutes a violator of the Health and Safety Code or regulations, and these cases are generally based on information provided by the Department.
