What are some of the required signs by the ADA?

The ADA classifies its signs into four categories, Identification, Informational, Directional, and Overhead. All different sign types have specifications that can be found in the Americans with Disabilities Act or by hiring a Certified Access Specialist to help get your signs compliant. These signs can be for Restrooms, Parking Lots, Stairways, Alarms, Phones, Elevators, and more. The exact requirements vary from business to business, but the most common signs are the Accessible Parking and Restroom signs.

Which signs do I use to be ADA compliant?

The ADA requirements for signs are very specific from sign contrast to no glare finishes, having the right sign can be the difference between being compliant and getting hit with an ADA lawsuit. Signs such as the restroom signs are required to have pictographs and in many cases recommend braille. In addition to the no glare finishes, and sign contrast, there are also requirements for appropriate fonts and character properties, this ensures the most universal readability.

Who enforces ADA laws & rquirements?

Although in some cases there are different departments that deal with some aspects of ADA such as the city code inspectors, ultimately all ADA laws and requirements are The Department of Justice's responsibility. The Department of Justice achieves progress of accessibility through hundreds to thousands of accessibility cases. Under Title III the DOJ may also obtain civil penalties up to $55,000 for the first violation and $110,000 for any subsequent violation.
