ARE YOUR ATMs COMPLIANT?
Laws and regulations are constantly changing in the ATM and kiosk world. In order to stay up to date and in compliance, it is best to have the site surveyed periodically to avoid penalties and lawsuits.
Dynamic ATM Services provides support for financial institutions seeking help in evaluating their ATM fleet with regard to the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines. For a nominal fee, Dynamic ATM Services will visit each ATM location and conduct a detailed inspection of the ATM equipment.
We then collaborate with you to develop comprehensive solutions to assure your ATMs conform to all requirements.
- Compliance for ATMs installed through 3/15/12 must comply with existing 1991 ADA specifications.
- Compliance for ATMs installed after 3/15/12 must comply with 2010 ADA specifications.
Dynamic ATM Services site survey program includes the following:
- Determine compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act Guidelines released on September 15, 2010, which requires all financial institutions, regardless of size, to comply with various accessibility specifications for their ATM fleets by March 15, 2012.
- Provide a list of items that will need to be addressed to bring the ATM/kiosk into compliance.
- A review with you to discuss all available options.
ADA - What are the changes?
