    Mark,

    I don't understand. Is this 2010 ADA for government facilities only or will state and local governments adopt this to replace the ANSI A117?

    Aegis, good document, I will certainly be sharing with our Owners and Tenants.

    BTW, you can call the number at the front of the standard and the government will send you hard copies.

    ADA is a civil rights law.

    The 2010 ADA standards for accessible design is a set of Standards for design Professionals that show how to comply with the ADA.

    Some Federal agencies are under the Architectural Barriers Act of 1968 (ABA).

    Some Federal agencies are under the Architectural with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA).

    The ADA has several Titles:

    Title I - Employment

    Title II - Public Services

    Subtitle A covers state and local governments generally;

    Subtitle B applies to most public transportation systems

    Title III - Public Accommodations and Services (including transportation) Operated by Private Entities

    Title IV - Telecommunications

    Title V - Miscellaneous Provisions

    Some are just for Governmental but most must be followed by all of us.

    The ADA is not usually enforced at the local level, it is a federal Law.

    All design professionals need to design their buildings with the ADA standards and the "local or state" code requirements.

    Some states have adopted the ADASAD as their guidelines
