On January 15, 2020, HUD published a proposed rule in the Federal Register inviting public comment on amendments to HUD’s Fair Housing Act design and construction regulations, which incorporated by reference the 2009 edition of International Code Council (ICC) Accessible and Usable Building and Facilities (ICC A117.1-2009) standard, as a safe harbor. The proposed rule would also designate the 2009, 2012, 2015 and 2018 editions of the IBC as safe harbors under the Fair Housing Act. Interested readers should refer to the supplementary information of the January 15, 2020 proposed rule for additional information.

HUD is extending the public comment deadline to provide the time needed for relevant stakeholders and the general public to submit comments regarding the proposed amendments.
