The March 2012 Deadline Has Passed: Do Your ATMs Meet ADA Accessibility Requirements? - Webinar

About the Program

Does your credit union’s ATMs comply with the revised Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations that were effective March 15, 2012? If an ATM was purchased before 2010, it probably doesn’t meet the new regulation’s standards. Financial institutions must ensure that disabled members are not treated differently, your credit union is required to provide auxiliary devices to assist them. The ADA mandates new specific requirements for ATM speech output, privacy, tactilely-discernible input controls, display screens, and Braille instructions, in addition to general-accessibility requirements regarding height restrictions and maneuverability space for wheelchairs. The only compliance exception is if the credit union’s compliance would result in an “undue burden.” This term is specifically defined in the new regulations and is difficult to meet. Join us to learn the general accessibility requirements, the new specific requirements, the limited exception, and recommendations on how your credit union can achieve compliance with the ADA’s ATM requirements.
