 When it comes to understanding the 2009 edition of the ICC A117.1 standard, there is no better tool than Significant Changes to the A117.1 Standard. This one-of-a-kind four-color resource identifies significant changes from the 2003 edition to the 2009 edition of the standard and provides the reason and rationale behind those changes. Essential for an easy transition between editions, the book's value lies in its focus, which is aimed at the most critical provisions, the most frequently used provisions, and provisions that have had a significant change in application, so that users can readily identify the need-to-know information. Each change is accompanied by a photograph, a real-world example, or an illustration, and is followed by a summary and analysis. Further enhancing this key content is the clear and deliberate labeling of each change as an addition, modification, clarification, or deletion. The end result is an indispensable resource that will familiarize building officials, plans examiners, inspectors, design professionals, and anyone in the building construction industry with the many important accessibility-related changes that have materialized in the A117.1 standard.

Some of the more important changes include:

  • Coordination of requirements for the various types dwelling units (consistency between Accessible, Type A and Type B unit provisions with a more logical ‘step down’ of the level of accessibility required in each type)
  • Technical requirements for Type C (Visitable) Units added
  • Accessible units require only one bathroom to be accessible
  • Relocating dwelling unit provisions for blocking around plumbing fixtures from Chapter 6 back to Chapter 10 so they are not overlooked or misapplied
  • Variable Message Signs (i.e., gate information in train stations and airports)
  • Better consistency of sign requirements regarding when raised characters and Braille are required 
  • Location of toilet paper dispenser (more design options, recessed fixtures addressed, single point of measurement, etc.)
  • New chapter for a variety of types of recreational facilities
