ANSI A117 Update

Note: SEGD members Dave Miller (Nova Polymers) and Teresa Cox (APCO Graphics) participated in ANSI A117 Committee meetings in January. The A117.1 Committee is working on the 2015 edition of the ANSI A117.1 model code on accessibility. Proposed changes in the code may eventually appear in state and local building codes or in a future update to the U.S. government’s 2010 Standards for Accessible Design (SAD). The following is a report from Dave Miller.

The first meeting of the ANSI A117 committee concluded on Friday, January 24, at the U.S. Access Board offices in Washington D.C.
