Universal Design v Access, What does the Federal Court decision – Ryan v Sunshine Coast Health Service – mean for access requirements to and within buildings? – 1.5 hours

A recent disability discrimination court outcome relating to access to buildings has now raised the bar!

It’s no longer about compliance with minimum access standards or the NCC!

In August 2021, the Federal Court made a watershed determination regarding access requirements in buildings. It’s no longer about ‘minimum compliance’ with the NCC and the Disability (Access to Premises – Buildings) Standards 2010, elements relating to Universal Design must also be considered in the design and development of buildings.

The session uses this Federal Court Order, as a case study to explore the impact of the decision on access requirements to buildings. Based on this decision, what is now critical to consider, that is over and above minimum compliance with access standards and the NCC to support equitable, dignified access for everyone and reduce the likelihood of a complaint under the DDA.
