AODA: Common Misconceptions About Proposed Accessible Built Environment Standard

Answer: No, the final proposed accessible built environment standard is not yet a regulation.

Why the misconception? Because numerous organizations concerned with the accessible built environment have copies of the final proposed standard, and they are already using it in their decision making processes. There is nothing wrong in using the proposed standard for informational purposes remembering that current laws prevail until the standard becomes regulation in whole or in part.
