ACCESSIBLE OPTIONS


What is the isa

WHAT IS THE ISA?

  • the acronym of the International Symbol of Access

  • its origin dates back to 1969 when RI (Rehabilitation International) selected it.

  • The design is registered as ISO 70001984

  • It has three functions (a) Information

    (b) Directional

    (c) Locational

  • It sits within the current Building Act as sec 120

  • Responsibility of building owner to display

  • Responsibility of the Councils to enforce

  • Worldwide it is the most recognised symbol


Why the isa

WHY THE ISA?

  • seeing it displayed on buildings, adverts and in websites shortens time when planning travel

  • because travellers with disabilities need to know which facilities are accessible

  • because 19% of the population have a long term disability - the disability sector represent a niche market. They spend the same as others.

  • ISA sign is sufficient- words not required

  • accessible facilities not disabled toilets, disabled rooms, disabled carparking

  • emphasis on the positive not the negative
