What do I get when hiring a "CASp"?

When hiring a "CASp" inspector with Certified ADA Consultants, Inc. , a property/business owner can rest assured their investments are being surveyed by an expert, certified with the State of California Division of State Architect.  A CASp inspector will survey property/business sites/buildings to ensure compliance in accessibility with the American's with Disability Act (ADA) and California Building Standards Code (California Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations).  A CASp inspector is a specialist in accessibility under California Senate Bills 1608, 1186, and 269

Why is it beneficial to hire a CASp?

A CASp has passed an examination and has been certified by the State of California to have specialized knowledge of the applicability of state and federal construction-related accessibility standards. A CASp will know which standards apply to your property based on the age of your facility and its history of improvements. While a licensed design professional, such as an architect or engineer, can provide you an access compliance evaluation of your facility, only a CASp can provide services that offer you "qualified defendant" status in a construction-related accessibility lawsuit. You can retain the services of a CASp at any time, however, "qualified defendant" status is only provided if you receive an inspection of your existing facility and a report from a CASp, and abide to a schedule of improvements toward compliance before a construction-related accessibility claim is filed against you.

Am I required by law to hire a CASp?

There is no law that requires a property owner or tenant to hire a CASp. If you are a business or property owner, your election not to hire a CASp shall not be admissible to prove your lack of intent to comply with the ADA or California law. If a CASp solicits your business with threat of legal action of a construction-related accessibility claim if you do not contract for services, you should immediately file a complaint with the Division of the State Architect CASp Certification Unit.

What is certified when I hire a CASp?

Certification applies only to a CASp, and indicates that the individual has passed an examination and is certified by the State of California to have a specialized knowledge of state and federal laws governing rights of individuals with disabilities and the applicability of state and federal construction-related accessibility standards. A CASp can conduct an inspection of your facility for compliance to applicable construction-related accessibility standards, but does not and cannot certify that a facility is compliant, nor can a CASp certify that a manufacturer's product meets accessibility requirements.
