The Division of the State Architect has indicated an intent to update California’s disabled accessibility standards for commercial building construction in order to conform with similar federal regulations issued by the US Department of Justice.
The potential to conform to federal standards has been hailed by industry and local building officials. For over twenty years, our state has maintained a “California-only” access code which varies slightly from the federal requirements, and these minor variations are often the source of costly “drive-by” litigation.
The DSA is expected to determine their final action plan and a related timeline for adoption later this month. We will keep you informed when a decision is made.
