General ADA Stands Information. 

ADA POS Mounting is very different from typical/traditional POS terminal mounting and we created the industry of ADA POS terminal mounting. While Taylor ADA POS stands and Mounts do work for all cardholders at the POS checkout, our patented utility has and uses very specific ADA regulatory design requirements as an ADA assistive technology addressing ADA/ABA/DOT/508/ICT.

Businesses already have the required ADA parking and entry/exit. ADA Compliance for checkouts are just as required and is Federal Law for all the right reasons. Our ADA Stands and Mounts are readily achievable and install-ready. The checkout is the major focal profit point for any business.

Accessibility ADA POS mounting is different than ordinary POS stands which do not qualify as ADA POS mounting for checkout and there are several reasons as to why that is. Taylor is the only ADA compliance POS stands/mounting maker in the world with many years behind the mounting assistive-tech for POS card terminals and unattended.

Taylor ADA compliance POS checkout stands and mounts are for all cardholders standing or in a seated position to use.

The Federal ADA law requires a one minimum ADA checkout and one in four for multi-lane stores including one for each separate sale/return and separate department checkout.

ADA checkout is required for all businesses, including Federal Government agencies, Military/MWR/VA, State, County, and City levels which too must acknowledge and respect all customers.

Taylor patented ADA stands and mounts meets the requirements for ADA/ABA/508 (ICT) regulations standards including the PCI and VISA acceptance for accessibility requirements for compliances and is the only point-of-sale card reader terminal stands and mounts in the world that accomplishes this, -attended, self-checkout and unattended.

Very important to know as well. ADA testers/litigators learn just as much from our site as do businesses and there is no way around providing the requirements by law and compliance. When new regulations/rules are enforced by the DOV/Civil  Rights Divisions and the ABA, such as the new coming (June 2024) Point-of-Sale ADA /ABA /DOT NPRM, please do not wait around to get your ADA compliance mounting. The ADA testers and ADA litigators will be out by the droves going after businesses of all sizes who are not in compliance. 

A business that does not have a one-minimum ADA checkout risks discrimination problems. Seriously expensive legal ones. 

Our ADA Dismount Stands are very simple for a cardholder to access and have full use and privacy at the checkout using our ADA stands and mounts for card reader terminals.

The checkout struggle is very real for millions of people and traditional card reader terminal mounting has a huge negative impact on people who do have accessibility needs.

It does not always have to be a person using a wheelchair or scooter that needs ADA mounting at a checkout, it could be a little person, a tall person with a bad back/spinal issues and poor vision, it’s impossible to calculate the variables.

The ADA has a lot of things in its regulations for accessible checkouts, and we will point out just a few key points. ADA 302.8 ADA limited reach and strength (full and private use the of pos-terminal-device), ADA visual accommodation (screen interaction). It also makes sense that a business that has ADA parking, must have an ADA checkout.

Be aware, non-accessible is viewed as discrimination which does cause additional legal problems and also the ADA fines start at $75,000 per location. And not being ADA accessible (ADA checkout) card reader (PCI) mounted takes the building and your business occupies is out of ADA building code. This affects you, the building owner (if renting/leasing) and State. County and City with additional problems.

If you are California based or have locations in California, additionally you have CAL-FIN 13082 and UNRUH ACT which has additional fines discrimination issues and other legal additions atop the ADA ones.

Your customers deserve better at your checkouts.

ADA TITLE 3 and TITLE 2 for POS Checkouts

A businesses owner may never notice they have customers with ADA accessibility needs that do have ease of use and privacy problems at the checkout. Your customers and cashiers do. There are millions who do have the issues. No reputable business should make it hard or deprive people of the required privacy and ease of use on those who do. The ADA, VISA and PCI have accessibility requirements for POS checkouts. Attended, Self-Checkout, Unattended (SSTMs).

In short, – ADA Title III businesses are required to have an ADA checkout whether a Mom and Pop shop, a regional or franchise all the way to big box brands regardless, -if you only have one checkout or thirty checkouts in the place of business. Attended, Self-Checkout, Unattended.

TITLE II are State, County, City, Township etc. It can get a little mixed, for example, a Social Security Administration Building is Federal which falls under ABA/508 (ICT) but is also in TITLE II space serving a TITLE III environment, – as to where say a state motor vehicles department is Title II State, in a Title II space serving a title III environment. All are still under ADA requirements by law.

No matter what, all business entities are subject to ADA compliance and being the point-of-sale checkout is the most used place on earth outside a person’s home, it is vital that the checkout is fully ADA compliant.

The best way to tell you have accessibility at checkout requirements, is if your place of business is required to have ADA parking. If it does or even if it is shared for instance, in a plaza etc, then yes, you are required to have an ADA Checkout.

In summary, -ADA building code, Visa acceptance and the PCI compliance requirements for privacy use are also in play as well as assistive-technology mounting for the card reader terminal device in addition to the ADA/ABA/508 ICT.

Be aware, non-accessible is viewed as discrimination which does cause additional legal problems and the ADA fines start at $75,000 per location. And not being ADA accessible (ADA checkout) card reader (PCI) mounted takes the building and your business occupies is out of ADA building code. This affects you, the building owner (if renting/leasing) and State. County and City with additional problems.

If you are California based or have locations in California, additionally you have CAL-FIN 13082 and UNRUH ACT which has additional fines discrimination issues and other legal additions atop the ADA ones.

ADA ABA DOT 508 ICT POS Checkout Information

OMB-: [3] See 36 C.F.R. part 1194, app. A (E103.4). The Access Board defines ICT as “information technology and other equipment, systems, technologies, or processes, for which the principal function is the creation, manipulation, storage, display, receipt, or transmission of electronic data and information, as well as any associated content.” AKA: The credit card terminal, attended, self-checkout, unattended, SSTMs.

Another term in ADA/ABA/508 (ICT) for point -of-sale devices is “Transaction Machines”. For Federal and Military and any other business on federal land with a checkout, you are already mandated to make these checkout devices fully accessible which requires the devices a mounted using the exact requirements and our mounting does just that and the only to do so in the world. A great example of inaccessible is USPS checkout with exceedingly high countertops.

This includes Title III and Title II of the ADA requires state and local governments to make sure that their services, programs, and activities are accessible to people with disabilities. Title II applies to all services, programs, or activities of state and local governments.

For State, County, City, Township etc. The Americans with Disabilities Act protects the civil rights of people with disabilities, ensuring they have equal access to job opportunities, buying goods and services, and taking part in state and local government programs and services, including ADA enforcement at your level including both ADA and your local building code requirements. A great example are Motor Vehicle Departments with generally very high countertops, especially in California.

The core to an ADA checkout is the terminal and the key to that is being ADA mounted, meaning -assistive-tech mounted using the requirements of the ADA.

Our patented ADA terminal stands and mounts are the only available that accomplishes this and we have made them readily achievable. Easy to install. You can have it set and ready for ADA use in minutes. It works for all cardholders whether standing or seated in left, right or forward positions. Custom builds are available with volume purchase

We know, you have allocations for this sort of thing. Your customers deserve better at your checkouts.

The below coming NPRM this summer (2024) is for all card and PIN terminals whether countertop, SSTM, ITMs etc. Everything.

This rulemaking amends the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board’s existing accessibility guidelines for buildings and facilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA), located at 36 CFR part 1191, to include guidelines for the accessibility of fixed self-service transaction machines, self-service kiosks, information transaction machines, and point-of-sale devices. The U.S. Department of Transportation and U.S. Department of Justice are expected, via separate rulemakings, to adopt these amended guidelines as enforceable standards for devices and equipment covered by the ADA.

Volume Purchases and Multi Location

ADA Compliance for checkouts is a Federal Law for all the right reasons.

Multi-Locations are a target for ADA non-compliance whether one location or all locations. Using reach and range only is not ADA compliance and while it is important, it is only an ADA construction standard requirement. Assistive tech mounting for your POS device is what is actually needed and is a requirement. Typically we see a couple checkouts in most cases like c-stores or Quick Serves. Big box and multi-lane is a bit different as having a mix of department checkouts and additional sales/return and service countertops. Attended, Self-Checkout, Unattended.

Taylor patented ADA stands and mounts meets the requirements for ADA/ABA/508 (ICT) regulations standards including the PCI and VISA acceptance for accessibility requirements for compliances and is the only point-of-sale card reader terminal stands and mounts in the world that accomplishes this.

ADA Compliance and Building Code

Building Code: ADA.Gov Sec.36.402 Alterations. (a) General. (1) Any alteration to a place of public accommodation or a commercial facility, after January 26, 1992, shall be made so as to ensure that, to the maximum extent feasible (hence assistive-tech POS CRT mounting), the altered portions of the facility are readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities, including individuals who use wheelchairs. Attended, Self-Checkout, Unattended.

To better explain this as an example, the checkout countertop is a fixed element. If you set the stand/mount on that fixed element, it becomes a part of that fixed element, it then is an alteration regardless of a new building or old building. The very first and/or only checkout lane or countertop, Kiosk with a POS card reader, Self-Checkout and other SSTMs is required to be an ADA checkout /assistive tech mounted 100%.

A few good examples are the USPS counters which are typically too high regardless of if a low counter section is available or what a bank calls a reception desk etc.

Another and we will use the California DMV for this example, near impossible to clearly access and use the POS CRT due to high counter and PIN on glass card readers and are out of ADA compliance.

A third example would be a grocery store which too have high countertop/lane checkouts.

If your building is checked off by building inspection or if a California business by a CASp, and your POS checkout is not assistive-tech mounted, you are not in Compliance regardless. Title II also requires state and local governments to provide program access as well. This would be more in terms of the furniture and equipment. The ADA/ABA 100%is attached to it.

In the private sector, the ADA Standards apply to places of public accommodation and commercial facilities. Places of public accommodation are facilities that affect commerce and that fall within twelve categories listed in the statute, including stores and shops, restaurants and bars, sales or rental establishments, service establishments, theaters, places of lodging, recreation facilities, assembly areas, private museums, places of education, and others. All types of private businesses that serve the public are included in the twelve categories, regardless of size. Commercial facilities include office buildings, factories, warehouses, manufacturing plants, and other facilities whose operations affect commerce.

The IRS offers a 50% Tax credit for assistive-technology purchases.

VISA T A D G and P C I Accessibility requirements

VISA Transaction Device Guide (TADG) 3.2 Section 2.6 – Accessibility. Device vendors and acquirers are responsible for ensuring that all customer-facing devices adhere to any and all accessibility requirements for the countries in which they operate and for the countries in which the devices are installed. In the absence of sufficient requirements, it is recommended that vendors, merchants, and acquirers support accessibility to persons with physical disabilities.

Merchant services providers (all levels), POS equipment suppliers and the businesses themselves are responsible to implement an ADA checkout. Not reach/range, that should be a given and is a construction requirement. It comes down to how the POS terminal device is mounted which has to use the ADA requirements.

In short for PCI (PTS-POI): “A person must be able to PIN shield using their body”. Note, unless a person using a wheelchair for example, – can get the POS device by using an ADA compliance stand/mount for the card reader terminal device (CRTD), -it is 100% impossible to PIN entry shield.

When you signed your merchant services processing, you agreed to abide by the Visa TADG and PCI (PTS-POI) requirements. ADA accessibility is honored in those requirements. Reach and Range are only construction requirements and do not remedy the requirements for ADA checkout and needs the ADA assistive POS terminal mounting.

IN VISA CORE RULES: ID# 0027481 Edition: Apr 2024 – 1.5.5.4 PIN Disclosure – “A Merchant must not ask a Cardholder to reveal the Cardholder’s PIN”. Unfortunately, this requirement is broken by many businesses daily.

It happens when a person cannot access the POS terminal and is using a debit only or needs cash back or a food benefit-issued card.

The cashier is in a rock and a hard place having to ask for the card and the cardholder to also divulge the PIN. The blame 100% falls on the business owner, C-suite, IT, merchant services, POS equipment provider and issuing bank of processing.

7.38 PED Security – If the design of the device requires that parts of the device be physically separated (e.g., the PED is not integrated into the device) and any cardholder instructions or processing data pass between the separate parts, there must be equal levels of protection between the different parts that make up the device. (This includes PIN entry privacy from with or the terminal or separate PINpad. Meaning being able to per (PCI-PTS-POI, – PIN shield using the body requirement.) Think wheelchair user as an example.

2.8 Cardholder Verification Methods (CVMs) 20 Visa Public January 2020 Note: A device may need to support functionality that allows merchants to offer an alternative CVM to PIN for cardholders that may be unable or unwilling to enter a PIN at the POS due to security concerns or certain disabilities in accordance with merchant protection and local disability legislation. Note, 2.8 is a major thing with anyone, yet people with disabilities have been ignored on their PIN privacy to this day for decades.
