California Disability Access – Senate Bill 269
As of 2009, owners of businesses open to the public can take advantage of a state law allowing the property owner to commission an assessment of their property by a California Certified Access Specialist (CASp). The CASp can provide a statement on whether the premises meet applicable federal and state accessibility standards. The owner can obtain a certificate demonstrating compliance. These inspections are entirely voluntary and the benefit of having an inspection would be that if a complaint has been made against a property for an accessibility issue, the burden is on the plaintiff to provide evidence showing they experienced difficulty as a result of a violation. The Department of California State Architect’s website has more information on who is eligible to perform inspections- https://www.dgs.ca.gov/dgs/home.aspx.
