SUMMARY: This final rule revises the Department of Justice (Department) regulation that implements title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), relating to nondiscrimination on the basis of disability by public accommodations and in commercial facilities. 4151 The passage of the ADA expanded the Access Board’s responsibilities.

ADA Chapter 1 and ADA Chapter 2 of the 2004 ADA/ABA Guidelines provide scoping requirements for facilities subject to the ADA; ‘‘scoping’’ is a term used in the 2004 ADA/ABA Guidelines to describe requirements that prescribe which elements and spaces—and, in some cases, how many—must comply with the technical specifications.

The ADA also requires the Department to develop regulations with respect to existing facilities subject to title II (Subtitle A) and title III. As a Federal member of the Access Board, the Attorney General’s representative voted to approve the revised guidelines.
