Webinar Series: Accessibility Online
from the U.S. Access Board


The next webinar in the U.S. Access Board’s free monthly series will take place February 6 from 2:30 – 4:00 (Eastern Time) and will cover "scoping" provisions in the ADA and ABA Standards. These requirements specify which (or how many) elements, spaces, and rooms must comply in newly built and altered facilities. They address the required number of accessible routes, parking spaces, entrances, restrooms, signs, and many other building elements and spaces. Scoping provisions also exempt certain structures and spaces. This session will review scoping requirements and exceptions in Chapter 2 of the standards that apply in new construction. Presenters will clarify common sources of confusion, employee work areas, entrances, vertical access in multi-story buildings, toilet and bathing facilities, and other subjects of frequently asked questions.

Visit for more information or to register. Questions can be submitted in advance of the session or can be posed during the live webinar.

This is the second session in a year-long monthly series that will review the ADA and ABA Standards chapter by chapter. The previous webinar, which covered Chapter 1 and application of the standards, is available in the webinar archives. Future sessions will cover:

  • March 5 – Chapter 2: Scoping - Alterations
