Withdrawn Technical Assistance and Guidance Documents

As part of the ongoing government-wide effort to reduce regulatory burdens and improve the quality of guidance documents offered to the public, the Department has been reviewing its catalogue of technical assistance and guidance documents, including those related to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The Department has identified documents that are appropriate for withdrawal and, where applicable, removal from ADA.gov. Withdrawing out-of-date, duplicative, or otherwise ineffective materials will make it easier for individuals with disabilities, covered entities, and the public to understand their rights and responsibilities under the ADA. The Department also reviewed public input received through a request for comments that the Department's Regulatory Reform Task Force published in the Federal Register on June 28, 2017.

The Department will continue its review of technical assistance and guidance documents and update this page as appropriate. Please see below for more information regarding specific documents that have been withdrawn and, where applicable, removed from ADA.gov.
