The Department of Justice (the Department) has amended its regulation implementing title II and title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which applies to public accommodations and commercial facilities. The ADA design standards are consistent with the guidelines published by the U.S. Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board). The Title II and III rules adopt new Standards for Accessible Design that are consistent with the ADA/ABA Accessibility Guidelines developed by the Access Board. The final rule also amends the existing title II and III regulations to make it consistent with current policies and published guidance, to reflect the Department's experience since the regulation was first published in 1991. These revisions take effect on March 15, 2011.
