Accessiblility guidelines on the ANSI webstore cover ergonomics in office equipment for the elderly and disabled; for vehicles and information technology. Accessible building standards and standards for Americans with Disabilities Act are also part of the collection of standards available for architects and builders.

The Department of Justice’s revised regulations for Titles II and III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) were published in the Federal Register on September 15, 2010. These regulations adopted revised, enforceable accessibility standards called the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, “2010 Standards.” On March 15, 2012, compliance with the 2010 Standards was required for new construction and alterations under Titles II and III. March 15, 2012, is also the compliance date for using the 2010 Standards for program accessibility and barrier removal. Get more information on the Americans with Disabilities Act from
