2
ABA/ADAAccessibility Guidelines
  • Coordinated ADA and ABA into single rule
  • Contains three parts
  • Scoping document for ADA facilities(Part I)
  • Scoping document for ABA facilities(Part II)
  • Common technical criteria referenced by both
    scoping (Part III)

3
Key Goals of Rulemaking
  • Updated for clarification and to reflect
    technological developments
  • Guidelines more consistent with model building
    codes and standards
  • Guidelines meet the needs of persons with
    disabilities

4
New Features
  • New numbering consistent with model codes and
    standards
  • Streamlined structure and organization of
    chapters
  • Updated scoping technical provisions
  • New figures and commentary

5
ADA Application Scoping
  • All portions of sites and facilities are subject
    to the guidelines unless otherwise noted
