Draft British Standard BS 8300 on Design of Buildings for Disabled People is Open for Comment

12/06/2008 | 0 comments

Logo of British Standards InstitutionThe draft document, BS 8300 on the Design of buildings and their approaches to meet the needs of disabled people – Code of practice, is now open to the public for comment.

The British Standards Institution (BSI) wants to hear views on this draft before it is launched as a British Standard (BS).

This British Standard explains how the built environment can be designed to anticipate, and overcome, restrictions that prevent disabled people making full use of premises and their surroundings. The guidance in this standard covers a wide range of disabilities and the use of the built environment by disabled people who can be residents, visitors, spectators, customers, employees, or participants in sports events, performances and conferences.

Comments on this draft are welcome and will assist in the preparation of the consequent British Standard. If no comments are received to the contrary, this draft may be implemented unchanged as a British Standard. 

Please note this draft is NOT the FINAL version of BS 8300. This document is a draft for public comment and its contents may be subject to change. It is NOT a British Standard until it has been published as such.

To download the draft and send comments, please go to the BSI website.

The deadline for receiving comments is 31 July 2008.
