Presented by the U.S. Access Board

The Access Board will host a workshop with accessibility experts from Australia on November 13 that will compare how building accessibility is addressed in Australia and the U.S. The public is welcome to the free event which will explore methods used in both countries to regulate, monitor, and enforce compliance with accessibility requirements. The goal is to foster a better understanding of how covered entities meet their responsibilities under civil rights and other laws governing access to the built environment.

The public can attend in person or remotely through a phone bridge with communication access real-time translation (CART).
