Elimination of Architectural Barriers

Military Service Members, Veterans, and Spouses - For more information about obtaining a TDLR license or renewing a TDLR license that expired while serving on active duty, please go to the Military Outreach home page.


TDLR’s Architectural Barriers (AB) program is issuing three new Registered Accessibility Specialist (RAS) Bulletins as reminders to follow the currently published RAS Procedures effective April 1, 2007. As the AB program continues with audits, it is apparent not all RASs are following the RAS Procedures. Please review these new RAS Bulletins and make adjustments to your practice as necessary.


The Texas Accessibility Academy will be presented on four dates in Austin in 2016. Remaining sessions in 2016 will be April 13-14, July 12-13, and August 16-17. The Academy will also be presented at two BPI conferences in 2016. For information about the BPI conferences (February in Houston, May in Arlington), please visit the Building Professional Institute Registration Site.


TDLR has issued Technical Memorandum (TM) 2014-24 (67kb PDF) to address 2012 Texas Accessibility Standards 206.3 (Location) and requirements for accessible routes to coincide with or be located in the same area as general circulation paths. Read Technical Memorandum 2014-24
