HUD/FHEO RIN: 2529-AA99 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: Fair Housing Act Design and Construction Requirements; Compliance With ANSI A117.1 Standards (FR-6138) 

This rule proposes to amends HUD's regulations with respect to the design and construction requirements of the Fair Housing Act and its amendments by updating and clarifying the references to the American National Standards for building accessibility. This standard (commonly known as ANSI A117.1) provides the technical standards for the design of housing facilities that are accessible to persons with disabilities. Compliance with the ANSI A117.1 satisfies the accessibility requirements of the Fair Housing Act and its amendments. This rule updates the references to ANSI A117.1 by adopting the 2009 edition of the standards. This rule also designates editions of the International Building Code (IBC) as safe harbors under the Fair Housing Act. The IBC is a model building code and not law that has been adopted as law by various states and localities.
