We appreciate your interests in Universal Design, a global movement of inclusive design practice initiated at NC State University College of Design. The Center for Universal Design is currently not active due to funding challenges. We are working to revive the Center, hopefully in the near future. We are unable at this time to provide assistance to your design inquiries.

The Access Board is the federal agency which:

The Current standards under the ABA are the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS). The Board develops the minimum guidelines for UFAS and enforces compliance with the standards. The Board does not enforce the ADA.

General enforcement of the ADA is by the Department of Justice; transportation, including complimentary paratransit, is regulated by the Federal Transit Administration; employment is regulated by the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission; and the relay provisions are regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The FCC also enforces the Telecommunications Act.

The International Code Council maintains the standard for Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities, CABO/ANSI A117.1, which is referenced by the three model codes. This document is maintained by the Accredited Standards Committee A117, under procedures developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
