Comments Due January 24 on the Access Board’s Proposed Guidelines for Passenger Vessels

Last June, the U.S. Access Board released for public comment proposed guidelines for passenger vessels. Developed under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the guidelines provide design criteria for large vessels when newly constructed or altered to ensure that they are accessible to people with disabilities. Public comments on these guidelines are due January 24. Those received after this date will be considered to the extent feasible. Comments can be submitted or viewed through the website. For further information, visit the Board’s website.
