New Standards for Assistive Listening Systems!

Washington DC, July 17 - The ICC/ANSI A117.1 Consensus Committee on Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities passed a motion, nearly unanimously, to modify the building codes for accessible standards under the ADA guidelines section 706: Assistive Listening Systems.

The modification will soon specify that "Where hearing loops are installed they shall comply with IEC 60118-4 (2006)"

This would not have happened with out Sharon Toji who represents HLAA on the committee, Marsha Mazz and David Baquis from the US Access Board.

For the ADA guidelines on the current standards on Assistive Listening Systems see the ADA standards: New ADAS Standards and for scoping requirements regarding assistive listening systems see Section 219
