The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted in 1990, with major revisions enacted in 2010. The language outlined in the 2010 Standards for Accessible Design (SAD) has not changed, but as of March 2011, compliance is now required and enforceable on the federal level.

The ADA lists visual impairments as a disability covered under the Act, and there are specific guidelines pertaining to signage products.

The two categories covered under interior signage are: Wall Mounted, Ceiling Mounted or Projected.

Within the Wall Mounted category, Identification of permanent room signs, Directional signs, and Informational signs are covered. Within the Ceiling or Projected Mounted category, Directional and Information signs are covered.
