Each of the persons to whom a permit is jointly issued is responsible for compliance with the provisions of the approved permit that are applicable to that person.

The division of industrial compliance shall disapprove an application for a permit required under this division unless the division finds that the proposed development or replacement of a mobile or manufactured home complies with the rules adopted under section 4781.26 of the Revised Code. No permit is required under this division for the construction, erection, or manufacture of any building to which section 3781.06 of the Revised Code applies.

The division of industrial compliance may suspend or revoke a permit issued under this division for failure to comply with the rules adopted under section 4781.26 of the Revised Code pertaining to flood plain management or for failure to comply with the approved permit.

Any person aggrieved by the disapproval, suspension, or revocation of a permit under this division by the division of industrial compliance may request a hearing on the matter within thirty days after receipt of the notice of the disapproval, suspension, or revocation. The hearing shall be held in accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code. Thereafter, an appeal of the disapproval, suspension, or revocation may be taken in the manner provided in section 119.12 of the Revised Code.
