Texas Accessibility Law

As of March 15, 2012, the 2102 Texas Accessibility Standards (TAS), will be enforced in TX. This document contains scoping and technical requirements for accessibility to sites, facilities, buildings, and elements by individuals with disabilities. The requirements are to be applied during the design, construction, additions to, and alteration of sites, facilities, buildings, and elements to the extent required by regulations issued by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation under the authority of Texas Government Code, Chapter 469. These standards are intended to be consistent to those contained in the 2010 Standards of Accessible Design.

A Registered Accessibility Specialist is a professional licensed with a state of the United States to determine if a part of the built environment (building, park, sidewalk, parking lot) is compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act and state laws. An RAS reviews construction documents to determine accessible design and inspects finished buildings to verify accessible construction.

Currently, Texas contains the most stringent accessibility laws. The Texas Accessibility Standards go above and beyond (in some cases) the expectations of the ADA. The TDLR (Texas Dept. of Licensing and Regulation), for example, requires that all commercial construction projects in excess of US$50,000 submit to an RAS for verification of compliance.
