DOJ/CRT RIN: 1190-AA78 Publication ID: Spring 2023 
Title: Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability by State and Local Governments: Medical Diagnostic Equipment 

Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires State and local governments to provide services, programs, and activities in a manner that is accessible to people with disabilities. The Department will seek public comment on proposed changes to its regulations to adopt the U.S. Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board's (Access Board) Standards for Medical Diagnostic Equipment (MDE) to ensure that MDE is accessible to persons with disabilities in their participation in or benefit of services, programs, and activities provided by public entities. The Department previously announced that it intended to issue an ANPRM, titled Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability by State and Local Governments and Places of Public Accommodation; Equipment and Furniture (RIN 1190-AA76) addressing possible revisions to its ADA regulations to ensure the accessibility of equipment and furniture generally. However, given the specialized nature of MDE, the Department has decided to publish a separate NPRM that addresses the accessibility of MDE.
