Webinar: Federal Facilities and the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) Accessibility Standards - A Refresher

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On July 24, 2015 (EST)

This webinar will be held on August 6, 2015 from 2:30 – 4:00 PM Eastern Time and is hosted by the United States Access Board.

This webinar, part of the U.S. Access Board’s free monthly series will provide a refresher on standards issued under the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA). The ABA Accessibility Standards apply to facilities designed, built, altered, or leased with certain federal funds. The ABA covers federal buildings, including post offices, social security offices, and federal courthouses, as well as non-federal facilities, such as public housing units and mass transit systems that receive federal funding. The Access Board enforces the ABA Standards through the investigation of complaints. Presenters will provide an overview of the ABA standards and the Board's enforcement process, including an update on the status of compliance over the past five years. The session also will review differences between the ABA Standards and the ADA Standards which apply to facilities in the private sector and the state and local government sector without regard to federal funding.
