UT, July 29, 2014 — As part of its ongoing efforts to
provide venues, contractors and system integrators with the latest resources, Listen Technologies
Corporation, a leading
designer, manufacturer and distributor of assistive listening products, has
gathered and clarified updated information on the California Building Code
(CBC). The state of California relies on the CBC to outline the compliance laws
for facilities that serve people with hearing disabilities in California – with
more specific guidelines than those offered by the Americans with Disabilities
Act (ADA). The CBC is updated and published every three years, and the most
recent revision took effect January 1, 2014. The new guidelines are
particularly significant for houses of worship, which are now classified as
“assembly areas” by the CBC and are not exempt from the laws for such spaces.
In addition, meeting rooms and conference rooms are required to have assistive
“We know that our channel partners and
clients are often not aware of changes in compliance and how they affect AV
projects,” stated Cory Schaeffer, Listen Technologies VP Business Development
Worldwide. “At Listen Technologies we spend a great deal of time and effort to
first understand the requirements as they relate to our category of products,
then to communicate the changes and guidelines in brief so that they are understood
and easy to follow. We hope these resources help the contractors and
consultants working in the Golden State to communicate to the venue owners, as
the venue owners can be held legally liable. Our approach is to talk about
‘why’ these requirements are in place, explain what is required to become compliant
and inform the venue owners of the tax benefits available for becoming
compliant. It's a win-win.”
