Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-06-18
Agency: Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board, Agencies and Commissions
The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board) proposes to amend the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) Accessibility Guidelines to specifically address emergency transportable housing units that are provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency or other entities on a temporary site in response to an emergency need for temporary housing. The proposed amendments seek to ensure that newly constructed and altered emergency transportable housing units covered by the ADA or ABA are readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. Other federal agencies are required to issue enforceable accessibility standards for the construction and alteration of facilities covered by the ADA or ABA that are consistent with the ADA and ABA Accessibility Guidelines. When the other federal agencies amend their accessibility standards to be consistent with the proposed amendments to the ADA and ABA Accessibility Guidelines, newly constructed and altered emergency transportable housing units covered by the ADA or ABA would be required to comply with the accessibility standards as amended.

Medical Diagnostic Equipment Accessibility Standards
Document Number: 2012-2795
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-02-09
Agency: Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board, Agencies and Commissions
The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (Access Board) is proposing accessibility standards for medical diagnostic equipment. The proposed standards contain minimum technical criteria to ensure that medical diagnostic equipment, including examination tables, examination chairs, weight scales, mammography equipment, and other imaging equipment used by health care providers for diagnostic purposes are accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. The standards will allow independent entry to, use of, and exit from the equipment by individuals with disabilities to the maximum extent possible. The standards do not impose any mandatory requirements on health care providers or medical device manufacturers. However, other agencies, referred to as an enforcing authority in the standards, may issue regulations or adopt policies that require health care providers subject to their jurisdiction to acquire accessible medical diagnostic equipment that conforms to the standards.
