Appendix B to Part 1191—Americans With Disabilities Act: Scoping

The following is a description of the corrections made to Appendix B to Part 1191—Americans with Disabilities Act: Scoping:

1. On page 12, in § 106.5 the term “amusement attractions” is italicized in the second sentence since the term is defined in § 106.5.

2. On page 20, in § 202.5 the word “or” in the term “qualified historic building or facility” is italicized since the term is defined in § 106.5.

3. On page 22, § 203.9 is amended to exclude raised courtroom stations from the general exception for small, elevated employee work areas. There is a specific exception for raised courtroom stations in § 206.2.4.

4. On page 29, § 206.4.4.1 is amended by adding the words “serving each fixed route or group of fixed routes” after the term “public entrance.” These words were in § 10.3.1(2) of the former guidelines. The amendment clarifies that, where different entrances serve different transportation fixed routes or groups of fixed routes, at least one public entrance serving each fixed route or group of fixed routes is required to be accessible.

5. On page 34, in § 208.2.3 the term “facilities” is italicized since the term is defined in § 106.5.

6. On page 70, in § 242.3 the term “accessible” is italicized in the second sentence since the term is defined in § 106.5.

Appendix C to Part 1191—Architectural Barriers Act: Scoping

The following is a description of the corrections made to Appendix C to Part 1191—Architectural Barriers Act: Scoping:

1. On page 79, in § F106.3 the blank spaces after the words “United States Postal Service” are deleted and a single space is inserted in their place.

2. On page 80, in § F106.5 the term “amusement attractions” is italicized in the second sentence since the term is defined in § F106.5.

3. On page 87, in § F202.5 the word “or” in the term “qualified historic building or facility” is italicized since the term is defined in § F106.5.

4. On page 97, § F206.4.4.1 is amended by adding the words “serving each fixed route or group of fixed routes” after the term “public entrance.” The amendment is consistent with an amendment made to § 206.4.4.1 in Appendix B to Part 1191—Americans with Disabilities Act: Scoping.

5. On page 102, in § F208.2.3 the term “facilities” is italicized since the term is defined in § F106.5; and in § F208.2.4 one indent is removed and the section is placed in-line with § F208.2.3.

6. On page 127, in § F233.1 the indent is removed and the section is placed in-line with § F233.

7. On page 128, in § F233.2 the indent is removed and the section is placed in-line with § F233.1.

5. On page 225, Figure 703.3.1 is revised to correctly reflect the requirements in Table 703.3.1.

6. On page 247, three sections are corrected. In the exception under § 806.2.3, the term “space” is italicized the second time the term is used since the term is defined in §§ 106.5 and F106.5. Section 806.2.4 is amended to clarify that at least one bathroom in an accessible guest room is required to be accessible; to reference the applicable requirements for accessible toilet and bathing fixtures in Chapter 6; and to permit accessible toilet and bathing fixtures to be located in more than one toilet or bathing area, provided that travel between the fixtures does not require travel between other parts of the guest room. In § 806.2.4.1, the italics are deleted in the second part of the word “non-accessible.”

7. On pages 248 through 251, the text is shifted due to the corrections on page Start Printed Page 45284247. There are no other corrections on pages 248 and 249.
