The Access Board - Rulemaking Updates

The Access Board - Rulemaking Updates

The Access Board is responsible for issuing updates to the ADA Accessibility Guidelines, the technical standard of the ADA. The process is somewhat complicated and drawn out. The new changes effect owners of buildings designed for children's use, state and local government facilities, telecommunications, and over-the-road buses. Upcoming changes, in process, include play areas, ADAAG revisions incorporating Federal Facilities and Housing, Recreation Facilities, and Outdoor Developed Areas. For your reference, we have provided a duplicate of the information published by the Access Board in an issue of Access Currents, slightly updated.  Click here now.
