New or Proposed ADA Regulations


horizontal border


ADA requirements may change as regulations are modified to improve access or to provide more detailed guidance for entities covered by the ADA.  When new requirements are proposed, a formal procedure is used which calls for public comment and agency review before the requirement is finalized.  Changes in existing requirements or new requirements are first issued as a proposed rule and published in the Federal Register.  Public comments, which are received by mail and over the Internet, are reviewed by the Department before a proposed Final Rule is published.  When the Final Rule is published, new requirements are established as detailed in the Final Rule.  For information on any new or proposed Department of Justice ADA regulations contact the ADA Information Line.
