USA - What's coming for POS Mounting.

Taylor POS –  New POS Mounting Requirements on the way for accessibility.

Taylor POS Dismount is the gold standard and world leader on true accessible POS Stands and Mounts for attended and unattended elements.  Just as the U.S. in 2022 is implementing Accessible POS Mounting requirements, the EU has just announced the same accessibility initiatives into law.

This rulemaking would amend the Access Board’s existing accessibility guidelines for buildings and facilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA), located at 36 CFR part 1191, to include guidelines for the accessibility of fixed self-service transaction machines, self-service kiosks, information transaction machines, and point-of-sale devices.  The U.S. Department of Transportation and U.S. Department of Justice are expected, via separate rulemakings, to adopt these amended guidelines as enforceable standards for devices and equipment covered by the ADA.

This is for POS – Card Readers:

  • Countertop
  • ATM
  • Kiosk
  • Self-Checkouts
  • Check-ins
  • Tellers and Clerks
  • At-the-Pump
  • and other. 

See what’s been announced for Europe from the CRPD adoption. The Same. This is really great news seeing Payments Channels across the board will become accessible for all people.
