Accessibility of Buildings and Facilities Available to the Public

Iowa law provides for the accessibility to persons with disabilities of buildings and facilities available to the public. Iowa Code Chapter 104B states the intent of these provisions as follows: "that standards and specifications are followed in the construction of public and private buildings and facilities which are intended for use by the general public to ensure that these buildings and facilities are accessible to and functional for persons with disabilities."

Responsibility for establishing these accessibility standards is assigned to the Building Code Commissioner and they appear in the State Building Code as 661--Chapter 302 of the Iowa Administrative Code.
