Federal Management Regulation; Real Property Policies Update; Technical Amendment
This document amends the Federal Management Regulation (FMR) to correct an omission from the amended final rule that was published in the Federal Register at 71 FR 52498, September 6, 2006. The original final rule, which was published initially in the Federal Register at 70 FR 67786, November 8, 2005, broadly applied GSA's accessibility standards to the design, construction and alteration of buildings subject to the Architectural Barriers Act (other than residential structures subject to the Architectural Barriers Act and facilities of the Department of Defense and the Postal Service), as provided by statute. When the implementation dates for the accessibility standards were amended on September 6, 2006, the amendment inadvertently deleted reference to facilities other than those that were Federally-owned or leased. Accordingly, this final rule corrects this oversight. Except as expressly modified by this final rule, all other terms and conditions of the Architectural Barriers Act standards remain in full force and effect.
