Check accessibility at Diebold ATM center
NORTH CANTON, Ohio (4/26/11)--ATM manufacturer Diebold is offering an online resource center to help credit unions comply with the new accessibility standards for ATMs as defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Diebold is a CUNA Strategic Services provider. The U.S. Department of Justice has issued a final ruling on accessibility standards for ATMs under the ADA. New standards include, but are not limited to, voice guidance requirements, Braille signage and input controls for visually-impaired individuals. The final rule was published in the Federal Register on Sept. 15; the 2010 ADA standards took effect March 15, 2011, and have a March 15, 2012, compliance date. During the interim period, an ATM owner must comply with either the 1991 ADA Standards or the 2010 ADA Standards for new construction and alterations, said the North Canton, Ohio-based Diebold. Starting March 15, 2012, ATM owners must comply with the 2010 ADA Standards for new construction and alterations. Diebold recommends that each credit union evaluate its installed base, consults with its legal advisors and develops a compliance plan based on its own ATM deployment strategy, financial position and tolerance for risk.
