This course is intended to familiarize the reader with the major changes contained in the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design related to plumbing elements and facilities. It is suitable for engineers exposed to ADA requirements at any level.

The 2010 Standards consist of:

  • Title II - the 2004 ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) and the requirements contained in 28 CFR 35.151
  • Title III - the 2004 ADAAG and the requirements contained in 28 CFR part 36 subpart D

The course covers changes between the prior requirements and the 2010 requirements. Scoping and technical requirements are discussed together, where appropriate, for ease in understanding the material.

In addition, the course includes selected public comments received by the Department of Justice (DOJ) regarding the 2010 Standards, as well as disposition of those comments. The DOJ’s responses to public comments are beneficial in understanding the rationale behind the 2010 Standards.
