Title III and 508 ICT

Federal Regulations and Assistive Technology Requirements

Public, Retail, etc: Title III of the ADA prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability by public accommodations and requires places of public accommodation and commercial facilities to be designed, constructed, as well as altered in compliance with the ADA accessibility standards.  The U.S. Department of Justice enforces ADA regulations governing state and local government services public accommodations, retail, etc. (Title III).

Federal, DOD, MWR, GSA: Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. § 794d) requires federal agencies to develop, procure, maintain or use Information and Communications Technology (ICT) that is accessible to people with disabilities – regardless of whether or not they work for the federal government.

The U.S. Access Board is responsible for developing Information and Communication Technology (ICT) accessibility standards to incorporate into regulations that govern Federal procurement practices.

Merchants, -the payments industry, POS equipment distributors and others like state and local level that work additional codes are not aware of what is required for accessible POS card and PIN reader mounting. We are here to change that. 

Most are told and believe that Reach and Range requirements are all that is needed for ADA compliance along with typical tilt and swivel-based stands. 

What reach and range is really used for in the case of POS is the independently accessible assistive technology available within the Reach and Range guidelines. 

See the below list of the required elements we engineered into our Dismount Point of Sale Mounting to meet the requirements for compliances. There is more than the ADA and 508 ICT which was half the battle of ensuring the payment card industry requirements are met as well as the ISO standards. We did that. 

Assistive mounting elements involved in Dismount is intensive and we rolled it all into our POS card and PIN reader ease of use and privacy assistive mounting technology.
