Please Note: The information we have compiled is part of a developing body of data. It is the hope of our commission that over time this information will help to better inform the community about areas where disability access is lacking so that it can be addressed through the collaborative efforts of the business and disability communities and government. This information is not intended to suggest that the top ten access issues are the same in every city or county. It is reflective of only the data received by the commission from law firms in compliance to SB1186. We hope this information will help in the ongoing dialogue between the disability and business community to reduce such barriers in our state.

CCDA Accessibility Construction Inspection Checklist

The California Commission on Disability Access is pleased to provide this Accessibility Construction Inspection Checklist (Accessibility Checklist) for use by trained building code officials/building inspectors as a reference guide to assist with on-site inspection of accessibility features and construction elements affecting accessibility compliance. The purpose of this Accessibility Checklist is to provide trained building code officials/building inspectors with a reference list of the most common accessibility features to be inspected and/or verified during the construction phases of commercial projects. This Accessibility Checklist is based on the 2013 California Building Code (CBC), Part 2. title 24. California Code of Regulations and should be used in conjunction with the regulations found in Chapter 11B of the CBC.
