An Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) building compliance checklist is an important tool for ensuring that buildings, both public and private, are accessible to all persons regardless of any disabilities they may have. The checklist assists in making sure that a building meets the federal regulations put forth by the ADA, which ensures that certain architectural elements are present to make a building accessible to those with disabilities. It is important for all buildings, especially public facilities like schools and government buildings, to meet ADA compliance standards.
