California resolves ADA inconsistencies with 2013 building code

The recently adopted 2013 California Building Code (CBC) revisions bring the state code in line with the federal Americans With Disabilities Act 2010. Inconsistencies between federal and state rules for spaces such as fitting rooms, accessible hotel rooms, and bathroom elements created many compliance challenges. The new state standards build upon the emergency regulations the State Architect adopted last summer to resolve conflicts between the two standards including toilet placement, toilet paper roll placement, tactile sign placement, and accessible drinking fountains.
