Government Reference Publication

Introduction: On July 23, 2004 the U.S. Access Board published new design guidelines that cover access for people with disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). These guidelines update access requirements for a wide range of facilities in the pub and private sectors covered by the law. They also include updated guidelines for Federal facilities covered by the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA). Both the ADA guidelines and the ABA guidelines, which the Board updated jointly to make them consistent, address access in new construction and alterations and contain scoping provisions, which indicate what has to comply, and technical specifications, which spout how compliance is to be achieved.
