In 2010, Congress passed the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA) to update our nation’s telecommunications protections for people with disabilities. Because of changed technology, broadband availability & public safety needs, Congress believed existing law did not provide sufficient accessibility to modern communications services and products for people with disabilities.  The CVAA and accompanying FCC regulations impose a variety of duties on communications and advanced service providers and manufacturers, including, Video Description, Recordkeeping Compliance, Captioning of Internet Video Programming, Display of Captioning on Equipment Used to View Video Programming.  The law provides for penalties for non-compliance and courts are enforcing CVAA obligations through ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) and state disability act lawsuit.  Any company that provides communications-related services or manufacturers communications equipment needs to know about the CVAA and its pitfalls.

As part of our webinar, we will discuss such practical subjects as:

  1. Streamlined process for wholesale providers to document their “passive conduit” operations that can exclude them from CVAA obligations;
  2. Access to our network of disability access technology consultants and solution providers;
  3. Processes that allow larger companies to conduct their product and service evaluations on an in-house, out-sourced, or combination basis; and
  4. Guidance on how to create helpful documentation in preparation for future investigations or even litigation.

Learn about how we can maximize the likelihood your compliance work can be protected by attorney-client privilege and help find the right path towards CVAA compliance that meets your company’s unique needs.
