United Kingdom Accessibility – The Disability Discrimination Act of 1995 (DDA) is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom which has now been repealed and replaced by the Equality Act 2010(EA) in most of the UK except for Northern Ireland. This act consolidates the DDA with the Disability Equality Duty(DDE) which requires public agencies to promote opportunities for the disabled. The DDA and later EA required that by October 2004 all “reasonable adjustments” must be made to ensure that buildings are accessible. Included in these improvements are signs. The EA is civil rights legislation where legal and civil actions can be enforced against institutions, not in compliance.
