New ADA Sign Regulations and California Building Code

There is still a lot of mystery out there about the new ADA sign regulations that became legally enforceable on March 15, 2012. On top of that, California has now completely updated their own regulations, first by passing some emergency regulations dealing with signs that went into effect last August 1, and now by preparing the new 2013 Building Code, which will be legally enforceable on January 1, 2014.

If you want to know more, you can visit my website at I have completely updated my ADA Sign manual, and you can get a download, or a hard cover manual, with or without a subscription. Also, I will be giving a seminar at the Long Beach NBM sign show in July. You can sign up right now for the seminar.

I'll be walking around the floor at the ISA show this weekend, checking out ADA sign displays, so look for me. I'm always happy to chat and answer your questions.
