The CFTC is committed to making its information and communication technology (ICT) as well as its facilities accessible to individuals with disabilities by meeting or exceeding the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Architectural Barriers Act of 1968. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act requires all ICT purchased, developed, maintained, or used by federal agencies to be readily accessible to individuals with disabilities. The Architectural Barriers Act requires that buildings and facilities that were built, designed, constructed, altered, leased or financed with Federal funds, by or on behalf of the United States, after August 12, 1968, be accessible to individuals with disabilities. For more information on the right to accessible ICT as well as to accessible facilities, please consult the United States Access Board’s website .
