1101.3 Notice and Warning
While efforts have been made to coordinate the accessibility requirements of this code with similar laws, this code has not been certified by the federal government or State of Illinois as a safe-harbor under the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA"), the Rehabilitation Act, the Fair Housing Act or any State of Illinois accessibility laws, including but not limited to the Environmental Barriers Act, and may not conform in all respects with those laws. Therefore, compliance with this code does not assure compliance with the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act, the Fair Housing Act or any other federal or state laws, or any rules promulgated with respect to such laws. The City of Chicago is not responsible for enforcement of the ADA, Rehabilitation Act, Fair Housing Act or such other federal or state laws, except as specifically provided in this code. Permit applications submitted under this code will be reviewed and permitted work will be inspected for compliance with the Chicago Construction Codes and will not be evaluated for compliance with the requirements of the ADA, Rehabilitation Act, Fair Housing Act or other federal or state laws, except as specifically provided in this code. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the developer or owner to have plans or facilities independently evaluated by knowledgeable professionals in order to meet or exceed the applicable requirements of applicable federal and state accessibility laws. Similarly, compliance with federal and state laws does not establish compliance with this code.
Exception: Where work is done by, on behalf of or with financial assistance provided by the City, the Commissioner of the Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities shall prescribe procedures to ensure the work complies with the City's obligations under federal and state law and Section 1101.2.2.
