Terms of Reference for disability access review announced

Wed, 04 Dec 2013

The disability access review is a joint undertaking between the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and the Office for Disability Issues. This review will look at whether the current building regulatory system meets the needs of disabled people. It aims to gain a better understanding of how building access requirements are being implemented in new and older buildings, and the extent to which the requirements provide for access to buildings for disabled people. Recommendations from the review are due by mid 2014.
