Americans with Disabilities Act and Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility Guidelines

This document contains scoping and technical requirements for accessibility to sites, facilities, buildings, and elements by individuals with disabilities. The requirements are to be applied during the design, construction, additions to, and alteration of sites, facilities, buildings, and elements to the extent required by regulations issued by Federal agencies under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA).

 

In addition to these requirements, covered entities must comply with the regulations issued by the Department of Justice and the Department of Transportation under the Americans with Disabilities Act. There are issues affecting individuals with disabilities which are not addressed by these requirements, but which are covered by the Department of Justice and the Department of Transportation regulations.

Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) Accessibility Standard for Department of Defense Facilities Revised

Standards issued under the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) apply to facilities designed, built, altered, or leased with federal funds. Four agencies establish the ABA standards according to guidelines issued by the Access Board:

  • Department of Defense (DOD)
  • Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
  • General Services Administration (GSA)
  • U.S. Postal Service (USPS)

This edition of the ABA Accessibility Standards has been adopted by GSA, DOD, and USPS. (The USPS standards do not include the non-mandatory advisory notes). HUD’s adoption of these standards is pending.

For more information, visit the United States Access Board website. You can view the ABA Standards in HTML and also download the figures as CAD files.
