Major revision planned for ADA’s access rules

In January, a government panel approved the first major update of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations since 1991. That move revises the ADA's Accessibility Guidelines, which govern how organizations must alter their buildings and premises to allow public access to disabled employees and customers.

Examples of changes: Banks would be required to install audio terminals on ATMs to allow use by visually impaired people. Theaters would be required to set aside certain spaces for customers in wheelchairs.

The changes, approved by the federally chartered Access Board, now go to the Office of Management and Budget for a 90-day review. Look for the Justice Department to adopt the guidelines later this year. For more details, visit www.access-board.gov.
