ADA and Product Certifications
Q: My company produces grab bars according to the design criteria set out in the ADA design standards. A customer, a shipyard in Europe, now asks for stamped certification that our grab bars are ADA compliant. Are there offices that offer ADA certifications?
A: No, there are no Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) “certification” offices. The ADA standards for accessible design address grab bar design, dimensions, and placement and heights, but does not provide a process for certifying individual products.
