ADA Accessibility

The 1991 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, printed as Appendix A of Title III of the Code of Federal Regulations on July 1, 1994, could be used for new construction and alterations under Titles II and III until March 14, 2012.

The Department has assembled an official online version of the 2010 Standards to combine the information in one easy-to-access location. It provides the scoping and technical requirements for new construction and alterations resulting from the adoption of revised 2010 Standards in the final rules for Title II (28 CFR part 35) and Title III (28 CFR part 36).

The Department has also compiled Guidance on the 2010 Standards from the revised regulations for Titles II and III. This explanatory information from the regulations addresses the scoping and technical provisions of the 2010 Standards.
