Justice Department Announces NPRM for Website Accessibility

March 1, 2013
Source: Office of Management and Budget

The Department of Justice (DOJ) recently announced a new July 2013 date for issuing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to amend its Title II ADA regulations that would address the obligations of state and local governments to make their websites accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. The DOJ stated that the NPRM will “propose the scope of the obligation to provide accessibility when persons with disabilities access public websites, as well as propose the technical standards necessary to comply with the ADA.”

The DOJ also stated that it will issue a separate proposed regulation in December 2013 to address the obligation of public accommodations (entities that do business with the public) to provide accessible websites and the technical standards that they must follow.
