2F Applying the DOJ Regs: New Construction, Alterations & Barrier Removal
The 2010 Standards for Accessible Design are part of the Justice Department’s title II and title III ADA regulations. Although some think of the 2010 Standards like a “code,” the requirements are based in civil rights law. Jim Bostrom, U.S. Department of Justice, will be discussing application of the ADA regulations and 2010 Standards. This is a must-attend, hands-on training for designers, ADA Coordinators, code officials, advocates and others involved in applying or interpreting the 2010 Standards. Attendees will not only see the requirements from a new vantage point, but they will better understand how to use the Standards and to find background information. This program also addresses parts of the ADA regulations that – while not specifically part of the 2010 Standards – are important to accessible design and maintaining access to buildings and facilities.
