The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a federal civil rights law, determined the minimum requirements for recently designed and constructed or altered state and local government facilities, public accommodations, and commercial facilities to provide equal access to inaccessible facilities by individuals with disabilities. Accessibility standards purpose to overcome this inaccessibility by setting many prescriptive dimensional or scoping requirements that are legal, design, or construction minimums.
2010 ADA Standards are the current approved guidance that have been issued by the United States Access Board and adopted by the Department of Justice to enforce the ADA. Nothing in the 2010 ADA Standard requirements prevents the use of designs, products, or technologies to provide substantially equivalent or greater accessibility and usability.
