ATM: Americans With Disabilities Act Requirements

Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 9:09 AM
The Justice Department is responsible for issuing Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations.

Any credit union with an automated teller machine (ATM) is required to meet the standards defined by the U.S. Access Board's Accessibility Guidelines. These guidelines have specific requirements for ATMs to meet regarding such things as height, input devices, and approach space. Failure to meet these standards can result in civil fines and injunctions requiring compliance.
