Accessibility

The Texas Accessibility Standards (TAS) are building standards adopted in 2012 by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation as a result of the amendments to the Architectural Barriers Act.

The Architectural Barriers program ensures that newly constructed or altered buildings and facilities are accessible to people with mobility, vision, or hearing disabilities.

The statute requires that construction documents covering subject facilities to be submitted for review if the estimated construction costs are $50,000.00 or more.

Building owners are responsible for having the required inspection performed within one year of the completion of construction.
