Comments Due: October 3, 2016
On August 3, 2016, the FCC released a Public Notice to seek comment on the accessibility of the FCCs programs and activities.
Federal agencies are required to make their programs and activities accessible to people with disabilities in order to comply with the requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. FCC has rules that require it to review its accessibility policies and practices at least every three years. The FCC also regularly updates its Section 504 handbook. The FCC Section 504 Handbook contains guidance on the provision of accommodations for the Commissions programs and activities, procedures for securing reasonable accommodations, and information about disabilities and accessibility (http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/section-504-handbook).
Comments may be filed by accessing the Electronic Comment Filing System at https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings and inserting the docket number CG Docket No. 10-162. For further information, please contact Helen Chang, Consumer and Governmental Affairs, Section 504 Compliance Officer, at 202-418-0424 or Helen.Chang@fcc.gov.
