Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Accessibility Requirements

In October 2022, the Connecticut Department of Administrative Services (DAS) set requirements for accessible EV charging stations by adopting the 2021 International Building Code by the International Council Code (ICC), 2017 ICC A117.1, and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Section 502.11.

Accessible EV charging stations must have an accessible route from the aisle adjacent to the parking space to the clear floor space. The accessible route must be unobstructed from bollards, curbs, or wheels stops, and remain unobstructed during charging. Meters and pay stations associated with EV charging stations must have displays and information visible from a point located no more than 40 inches above the center of the clear space in front of the parking meter or parking pay station.

For more information, see the DAS Building and Fire Code Adoption Process website.
