  5. Alternate documentation, such as a letter from the manufacturer indicating that the unit was originally approved, cannot be accepted in place of an approval label.  However, if original documentation exists (for example, a specification sheet with CSA number) and there have been no unpermitted alterations to the unit, a silver label may be applied by a Safety Officer upon notification of an inspection request under a silver label permit and confirmation that the installation is in good order in accordance with Rule 2-300(1).  A Used Mobile Home Inspection Report is not required under these circumstances.
