Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. § 794d)
The NTSB is committed to making its Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) accessible to individuals with disabilities by meeting the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. 794d). Section 508 requires agencies, during the procurement, development, maintenance, or use phases of ICT, to ensure that individuals with disabilities have access to and use of ICT comparable to that afforded to individuals without disabilities (i.e., “ICT accessibility”), unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency. Standards for Section 508 compliance are developed and maintained by the United States Access Board. Further information about the Access Board's standards and Section 508 generally may be found at www.section508.gov.

Architectural Barriers Act of 1968 (42 U.S.C. §§ 4151--57)
In addition to observing the provisions of the Current Accessibility Policy, as described above, the NTSB will also comply with the standards issued under the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) of 1968 by the United States Access Board (http://www.access-board.gov). The United States Access Board designed such standards in order to ensure that Federal employees with disabilities have access to and use buildings and facilities that is comparable to that afforded by Federal employees without disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency. In addition, with regard to public accessibility, the Access Board standards require that members of the public who have disabilities have access to and use of buildings and facilities that is comparable to that provided to those without disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency. The Access Board's accessibility standards are available on their website at www.access-board.gov/guidelines-and-standards/buildings-and-sites/about-the-aba-standards. Complainants may file an ABA complaint with the Access Board using an Online ABA Complaint Form or by e-mail, fax, or mail. For more information on how to file an ABA complaint, visit the Access Board’s Complaint Form page found at https://www.access-board.gov/aba-enforcement/file-a-complaint.
