Whether it be new, an addition, or renovation, making your construction project accessible for people of all abilities is required by a Texas law called the Elimination of Architectural Barriers Act.

The Act has a set of standards that must be met, known as the Texas Accessibility Standards (TAS).

The Act is regulated though the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR)

and designated Registered Accessibility Specialists (RAS).

 

TDLR does not administer or enforce the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

TAS compliance is generally a three step process:

1. Registration 

2. Plan Review

3. Inspection

Submission to the TDLR is required for any project with a construction cost of $50,000 or more.
