Regululatory Alerts Item – ADA Accessibility of Websites

On 22 June 2009, posted in: SBA by admin | Comments Off

DOJ is considering requirements to make websites accessible for people with disabilities. These regulations could affect governmental entities and public accommodations covered by the ADA that provide goods, services, programs or activities to the public via websites on the Internet. Title III of the ADA covers private entities whose operations affect commerce (such as restaurants, movie theatres, schools, daycares facilities, recreational facilities and doctors’ offices) and commercial facilities (such as factories, warehouses and office buildings). DOJ specifically asks the public for input on the impact of web accessibility requirements on small entities. Comments are due on January 24, 2011.
